The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine supports active research programs funded by the National Institutes of Health and other extramural sources. The research programs in the department cover the spectrum from basic cellular and molecular processes through applied disease research, including molecular and cellular pathobiology, carcinogenesis, gene regulation, virology, tissue biology and pathogenesis of various human diseases. Information about the research activities of individual faculty members may be found on their own web pages. The research activities of the Department interface closely with other research programs at the Tulane University, including those at the Tulane Cancer Center and other departments in the School of Medicine.
Our Department offers ample opportunities for training in biomedical research. Intensive research training with Pathology faculty is available through postdoctoral fellowships or through the School of Medicine interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences. The Department also strongly encourages clinical residents and fellows who are interested in pursuing laboratory research as part of their training.
