The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine is both a clinical and basic science department, providing an optimal perspective for true translational research that bridges patient care with biomedical research. Our department engages in cutting-edge research with the goal of improving patient care.



Our pathologists are board-certified experts, providing patients with accurate and comprehensive diagnosis fundamental to effective treatment. Because they see a large volume of diverse cases, patients know we have the knowledge and experience to provide excellent care. We often provide patients with a second opinion after a primary diagnosis.

Your contribution helps bolster our efforts to improve the care of patients and expand our knowledge of how diseases develop and progress. You can support a specific program, area of study, or honor an individual physician or researcher. Unrestricted gifts expand our programs, and help purchase the latest, most sophisticated equipment.
