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.

    Roughly speaking, applying mathematics to the study of cancer biology comes in two varieties. First, bioinformatics analysis of experimental omics datasets is an important tool in the study of cancer, and is based on very simple statistical ideas and algorithms. Second, and perhaps less familiar, is the application of modelling (e.g., a chemical master equation, stochastic systems biology) to focussed and idealized studies of components of cancer biology. I will use the topic of telomere length dynamics and the activity of telomerase in tumours as examples of each kind of applied math. Everyone is welcome!
