PATH 890 Research in Pathology
RSH. Replaces PATH 911 in prior catalogs. Enrollment for masters students and PhD students who have yet to successfully complete the oral comprehensive examination.
Doctor of Philosophy in Pathology
The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine offers a graduate program leading to the PhD degree including research opportunities with emphasis on developmental biology and cell differentiation, cancer biology, stem cell biology, microbial and viral pathogenesis, gene regulation and experimental pathology. This curriculum is designed for advanced research study in molecular and cellular biology and experimental pathology. The course requirements of the Pathology Department Graduate Program are designed to provide maximum flexibility for the student's specialized needs. Students enrolled in the program are required to take graduate coursework in fields related to molecular and experimental pathology and to choose electives from either Pathology or other Medical Center departments related to their major dissertation work. After passing the Comprehensive Examination, students will devote most of their time to laboratory experimentation and developing a research project. Substantial portions of the research efforts should result in published works in peer-reviewed scientific journals. The Doctorate of Philosophy in Pathology and Laboratory Medicine provides comprehensive training in understanding the molecular basis of disease and the fundamental mechanisms of cell growth and differentiation. Subspecialized research interests in the arenas of cancer biology, stem cell biology and microbial and viral pathogenesis are supported through required and elective coursework and laboratory activities. A Pathology PhD will afford the student the flexibility of tailoring a course of study towards specific research interests and goals, and prepare the student for a career in advanced academia or positions in industry.
Master of Science in Pathology
The Master of Science in Pathology provides comprehensive training in understanding the molecular basis of disease and the fundamental mechanisms of cell growth and differentiation. It prepares the student for either a career in advanced academia or lays the base for continued terminal education. It may also lead to teaching positions at the secondary or junior college level.
