Welcome to the Department
of Pathology and Molecular Medicine


Welcome to the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine of Queen’s University.  Our Department is uniquely placed at the interface between basic biomedical science and clinical medicine.  Our dedicated faculty deliver a broad array of highly integrated programs in fundamental and translational research, diagnostic laboratory services and education. In doing so, our Department has a distinctive role in the School of Medicine in that it serves as both a basic science department, with its attendant academic responsibilities, and a clinical department responsible for the delivery of complex laboratory services in the teaching hospitals.

Queen's School of Graduate Studies' Dissertation Boot Camp

Posted 2015 May 25

From http://www.queensu.ca/gazette/stories/getting-writing-boost-dissertation-boot-camp

Kathrin Tyryshkin got the support she needed to finish writing her dissertation at the Queen's School of Graduate Studies' Dissertation Boot Camp. The next Boot Camp is scheduled for June 8-12. (University Communications)

Before even defending her PhD in Computer Science, Kathrin Tyryshkin had two job offers - one in industry, and one at a Queen's department (the one she ultimately took). Dr. Tyryshkin surely chose a timely field and stayed the course with diligence in publishing, conferencing and teaching, but she credits at least part of her success to Queen's School of Graduate Studies' Dissertation Boot Camp. The primary aim of the five-day Dissertation Boot Camp is for participants to write and make substantial headway on their thesis. The majority of the time is spent writing, with breaks for snacks, lunch, and structured group discussions about topics relevant to thesis writers.
