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.

Beauty in Research

Posted 2015 November 20


There is a massive amount of research going on at Queen's University and a recent photo contest has helped provide a view of some of the amazing work being accomplished.

This September, the Office of the Vice-Principal (Research) launched the first Art of Research photo contest, calling on faculty, staff and students to showcase their research, scholarly and artistic work. Dozens of images were received highlighting a wide range of research from microbiology to the humanities, and locations such as a lab on campus to the Ebola outbreak zone in Africa

Shown here is "Leaving home - A microscope slide" by Eric Y Lian, PhD student (Dr. Mulligan), Department of Pathology & Molecular Medicine, which was one of the runner-ups.
