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.

Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) CIBC Run for the Cure!

Posted 2015 September 21

Hello Everyone!

Sunday, October 4th marks the return of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) CIBC Run for the Cure! The CBCF has made a significant impact to reduce the burden of breast cancer through research, education, awareness and advocacy initiatives with support from people like you!

In previous years, the Department of Pathology & Molecular Medicine has put together a team to participate in the Run for the Cure and raise funds for this cause. Some of these funds have even come back to Queen's in the form of funding grants and fellowships. We are again assembling a team to support the CBCF in their noble initiative and to show gratitude for their constant support of our own professors, students, and Kingston community.

Event Information
Date: Sunday, October 4th, 2015
Time: 10:00am (Opening Ceremonies) + 11:00am (Start of 5km run)
Location: St. Lawrence College, Portsmouth Avenue
More information can be found at the Run for the Cure website.
