of Pathology has four interdependent missions: clinical service, research,
training, and developmental molecular diagnostics.
The LP website offers many useful links relating to safety, human
biological materials and the news and events of the department. Here you will also find our Residents and Policy manuals.
Services: The LP conducts all of the diagnostic anatomic
pathology for all the patients undergoing clinical trials in the NCI
and in the NIH Clinical Center, for all patients being considered
for entry into clinical trials, and for epidemiologic and case studies
of disease pathophysiology. Clinical diagnostic services include surgical
pathology, cytogenetics, cytopathology, postmortem, hematopathology,
pediatric pathology, electron microscopy, flow cytometry, and specialized
histology. In addition the LP provides expert consultation for extramural
requests in the fields of hematopathology, ob/gyn pathology, cytopathology,
and pediatric pathology.
Sciences: The LP conducts basic and applied research in the
following program areas: genetic mechanisms of human tumor progression,
gene regulation, molecular immunology, invasion and metastasis, and
cellular interaction with the extracellular matrix. Discovery-oriented
research in the LP has yielded the identification of 17 genes which
can be mechanistically linked to cancer pathogenesis, and provide
diagnostic and therapeutic strategies.
