Welcome to the Department
of Pathology and Molecular Medicine


boag This is an exciting time of growth, innovation and success for our Department which is uniquely placed at the interfaces between basic biomedical sciences, clinical laboratory services and the emerging field of personalized molecular medicine. Our clinical faculty membership has been rejuvenated and expanded over the last two years with no less than 10 success recruitments, 4 of which represent newly funded positions. We are also looking to expand our basic science programs and are actively recruiting a Tier 1 Bioinformatician and also a translational basic science researcher.
