Faculty in Anatomic Pathology
The Division of Anatomic Pathology is staffed by more than 20 primary faculty members, with subspecialty teams in Autopsy Pathology, Cytopathology, and Surgical Pathology. The Division has grown substantially in the last 6 years, and during this time new senior leadership appointments have been made in all areas of the Division.
Faculty in Clinical Pathology
The Division of Clinical Pathology is staffed by over 15 nationally-prominent academic physicians, doctoral scientists, and researchers. Expert consultation on laboratory test selection and interpretation is offered by our medical directors for the UHHS physicians and providers. The division faculty promotes the research mission of the department through individual and collaborative grants in areas such as drug development, immune function, and analytic laboratory methods.
Faculty in Community Hospitals Pathology
The Division of Community Hospitals Pathology is staffed by more than 10 primary faculty members, providing comprehensive pathology services throughout the Northeast-Ohio region. Our Community Hospitals pathologists are trained in many sub-specialties including: Gynecological Pathology, Perinatal Pathology, Surgical Pathology, Cytopathology, Hematopathology, Neuropathology, and Infectious Diseases, among others.
Faculty in Experimental Pathology
The Division of Experimental pathology is staffed by more than 30 primary faculty members. These research-intensive faculty and their laboraties engage in basic and translational research programs. While there are many topics of investigation, the three major research emphasis areas are cancer biology (particularly breast cancer, hematopoietic malignancies and GI cancer), immunology (and related areas such as inflammation, infectious diseases, inflammatory bowel disease and immunotherapy), and neurodegenerative diseases (prion disorders, Alzheimers, Parkinsons, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or ALS, Frontotemporal Dimentia or FTD, etc).
These research emphasis areas are reflected in the three tracks of the Pathology Graduate Program: the Cancer Biology Training Program (CBTP), the Immunology Training Program (ITP) and the Molecular and Cellular Basis of Disease Training Program (MCBDTP). The Pathology Graduate Program provides extensive opportunities for PhD or MD-PhD training in these areas, supported by three NIH T32 training grants (Immunology Training Program, Cancer Biology Training Program, and Neurodegenerative Diseases training grant). The department also provides two programs leading to the MS degree.
Genomic and Molecular Pathology
The Division of Genomic and Molecular Pathology (GMP) is a subspecialized academic department that provides molecular diagnostic services for University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center and its associated Health System. The division is divided into three lab sections: Cytogenetics Laboratory, Molecular Genetics Laboratory, and University Hospitals Translational Laboratory.
Center for Global Health and Diseases
The Center for Global Health and Diseases has pursued research toward tropical and parasitic diseases for more than 40 years. The center’s scientists have contributed substantially toward research of important tropical diseases, such as schistosomiasis, malaria, lymphatic filariasis, and leishmaniasis, and also in the training of many foreign investigators—some who now play leading roles in research and health in their countries.
