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.
The department has developed an important infrastructure to help support research, including numerous core facilities and the Center for Translational Pathology to facilitate the pipeline from discovery to implementation. Our research encompasses genomics, cell biology, and vascular biology, among other critical fields of pathology and laboratory medicine. Our faculty members take pride in performing world-class research and providing training opportunities at the graduate and post-graduate levels.
Our mission is to conduct game-changing research and to help develop the research leaders of the future.
The Division of Cell and Cancer Pathobiology, led by Dr. Jorge Moscat, comprises research laboratories whose overarching goal is to unravel the molecular and cellular basis of human diseases. Being part of the Department of Pathology offers the unique opportunity to access human specimens and pathology expertise to validate and investigate the human relevance of the molecular mechanisms identified in cell and mouse models of cancer and other pathologies. In that respect, our laboratories are uniquely positioned to develop high-impact projects with clear translational potential. The ongoing studies in our research teams range from pan-cancer genomics and RNA biology to studies in pathophysiologically relevant mouse cancer models, the study of stem cells in bone physiology, and research on the cellular basis of cardiovascular pathologies. Our faculty performs world-class research and provides outstanding training opportunities for graduates and post-graduates in laboratories poised to conduct paradigm-changing discoveries to impact the diagnosis and treatment of human diseases.
The Division of Computational Pathology, led by Dr. Luigi Marchionni, encompasses scientific objectives of digital pathology and image analysis, clinical genomics and other omics, and the integration of multi-modality data with clinical information.
We also offer a wide array of Postdoctoral research positions.
