The department has six full-time experimental pathologists on staff. Several of our clinical faculty members also have funded research programs.
The Experimental Pathology faculty members are involved in research focusing on the molecular basis of human diseases. Research interests include Molecular pathology, cancer biology, cell biology, neurobiology, protein chemistry, myeloproliferative disorders, inflammation, Alzheimer's disease, aging, hematopoiesis, intracellular trafficking, apoptosis, and signal transduction.
A Molecular Pathology Core laboratory equipped with many pieces of the latest molecular biological instrumentation, and other OUHSC campus-wide facilities, such as the Flow and Image Cytometry Laboratory and Laboratory for Genomics and Bioinformatics, provide both the expertise and facilities necessary for conducting cutting-edge biomedical research.
Several of our experimental pathology faculty members are located in a newly-constructed state-of-the-art research facility (Biomedical Research Center), which provides access to high-end biomedical equipment shared by other departments.
A Doctoral Degree in Experimental Pathology is offered by the Graduate Program, which shares an interdisciplinary core curriculum with the other basic science departments in the College of Medicine. Members of the Experimental Pathology group are involved in teaching medical, dental, and graduate students, and play prominent roles in numerous College of Medicine and university committees.
