The services provided by the faculty members of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center are essential for optimal patient care. An accurate diagnosis is crucial for patients to receive the most effective therapies. The expertise of our internationally recognized pathologists — most of whom have subspecialty training — ensures the greatest chance of an accurate diagnosis and solid footing on that first critical step on a patient's journey. Our services are also widely employed to monitor patients' response to therapy and to predict prognosis.

Prominent among our faculty are several authorities in the areas of hematopathology, dermatopathology, nearly all surgical pathology subspecialties, and laboratory medicine. Building on their expertise, we have developed a nationwide diagnostic and patient management consultation service in support of our reference laboratory services. We also provide our expertise internally to support Weill Cornell.

Clinical Divisions

The Division of Anatomic Pathology possesses 35 outstandingly qualified faculty members who provide a comprehensive range of diagnostic services with strong emphasis on the highest quality patient-care based on diagnostic accuracy, state-of-the-art technologies, and personalized service to client

The Division of Hematopathology includes 11 faculty members with dedicated subspecialty training and experience in the comprehensive diagnostic evaluation of hematologic disorders, many of whom are internationally recognized for their clinical and research efforts.

The Division of Laboratory Medicine provides medical directorship and diagnostic services for the diverse array of laboratory-based diagnostics of the NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Clinical Laboratories, as well as in Transfusion Medicine and Cellular Therapy. In addition to oversight of day-to-day diagnostic operations and consultations with clinicians, Laboratory Medicine faculty are critical in the assurance of accurate and reproducible test results, maintenance of laboratory certification, control of laboratory test utilization, development and deployment of new assays, understanding and improvement of laboratory informatics (including test interfacing into the electronic medical record), providing safe and effective blood and cellular therapy products, and operation of point-of-care testing.

The focus of the Molecular and Genomic Pathology Division is to provide Weill Cornell Medicine physicians with molecular information that will facilitate the diagnosis of diseases, monitor the prognosis of the patients and assist in the selection of appropriate therapeutic options.

Experimental Divisions

Pathology is the study of the essential processes leading to the development of human diseases, with a specific focus on the molecular, structural, morphological, and functional changes produced in cells and tissues by such processes. In this respect, the scope and scientific goals of Computational and Systems Pathology (CSP) do not differ from those of more classical Pathology disciplines.

The Division of Cell and Cancer Pathobiology, led by Dr. Jorge Moscat, is constituted by research laboratories whose overarching goals are to unravel the molecular and cellular basis of human diseases.
