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 researchers benefit from moustache fundraiser

A national cancer research collaboration that includes two members from Queen's has been awarded the $5 million 2014 Movember Team Grant from Prostate Cancer Canada (PCC).

David Berman and Paul Park, both from the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine, will receive funding as part of the Prostate Cancer Program Project in Rapid Development of Novel Diagnostic Markers for Early Prostate Cancer (PRONTO). PCC identified the research team as poised to make the greatest impact in prostate cancer research.

The grant is awarded by PCC and funded by the Movember Foundation, a global charity that relies on the fundraising efforts of men collecting pledges as they grow moustaches every November.

PRONTO aims to determine the type of treatment needed when men are diagnosed with prostate cancer.

"Being a part of the PRONTO team provides me with a rare opportunity to participate in a large scale biomarker development project from discovery to clinical validation," says Dr. Park. "The interactions fostered within this multi-institution, trans-disciplinary team will have a big impact in establishing my research career in this field. The funds provided by this grant will be used to support a post-doctoral trainee in my lab, and also to help establish one of the core components of this project here on Queen's campus."

Fewer than half of diagnosed prostate cancers are harmful and men newly diagnosed with the disease face an array of options and possible side effects.

"If we could better separate harmful and harmless prostate cancers, we could help patients and their doctors make clearer choices. With funding from Movember and Prostate Cancer Canada our team will develop new and better tests for this purpose," says Dr. Berman. "For members of my laboratory and me, this is an unprecedented opportunity to work with experts in a variety of critically important areas to do something important for patients. We are extremely grateful to Movember, Prostate Cancer Canada, and all of the donors and volunteers who have made this work possible."

The team is led by John Bartlett of the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research and the research team is made up of 14 researchers from across Canada.

Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada

The Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine in the Queen’s University Faculty of Health Sciences and its affiliated teaching hospitals is recruiting an academic Anatomical Pathologist with subspecialty training/expertise in dermatopathology. The ability to participate in other diagnostic pathology subspecialties, particularly gastrointestinal pathology, would be considered an asset. Applicants with dual certification in Dermatology and Dermatopathology are also encouraged to apply... [more]
