  • Research

    The Pathology Department at UMMC actively participates in both basic science and translational research projects. Our clinical faculty members are actively engaged in their own projects and also frequently collaborate on projects with other physicians and scientists at UMMC. Our residents and fellows regularly present research projects at national meetings. We have several basic science faculty members both within our department and also appointed within the Cancer Institute. Our pathology graduate program trains both master’s degree and PhD-level scientists in an environment rich in scholarly activity, headed by Dr. Julius Cruse, a two-time recipient of the prestigious Guyton Professor designation.

    Our department also offers support for researchers across our entire campus through our histology research laboratory. This lab provides high-quality histology, histochemical and immunohistochemical staining, tissue processing and embedding of both human and animal tissues. Our experienced technicians accommodate research requests in a timely manner. A fee schedule can be found in the “histology research lab” section of this website.

    The UMMC Biospecimen Repository is also housed within the Department of Pathology. We consent patients every day to donate leftover tissues from surgical procedures in our IRB-approved tissue repository.
