The Laboratory of Pathology has four interdependent missions: clinical service, research, training, and developmental molecular diagnostics.

Laboratory Resources: 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.

Clinical 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.

Basic 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.
