The Department of Pathology supports research as an important academic mission for our faculty and staff. The research interests and activities of our faculty cover a broad range that includes basic science as well as clinical and translational research. Particular areas of strength in the basic sciences include biomedical imaging, developmental genetics, cell polarity and morphogenesis, extracellular matrix, and protein folding and molecular motors.


Biomedical imaging is an interdisciplinary field with roots in biology, medicine, physics, engineering, mathematics, and computer science. It encompasses a broad spectrum of techniques and processes for acquiring, analyzing, storing, transmitting, visualizing and interpreting imaged molecules, cells, tissues, organs and organisms for the purposes of investigative research and a wide range of diagnostic and clinical activities.Investigators at the Center for Biomedical Imaging & Informatics continue to develop new approaches in automated image interpretation, statistical pattern recognition, data mining, computer-based diagnostics, and high-performance computing to address challenges in computational biology, and diagnostic pathology and radiology.
