Research-based MSc and PhD Graduate Programs

Graduate & Postdoctoral student

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine offers full-time and part-time degrees of Master of Science (MSc) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).

The goal of our graduate program is to train tomorrow’s researchers, who will make significant original contributions to the global understanding of disease diagnosis and mechanisms. Graduates of our program will have the foundation, skill set and opportunity for careers including academia, government, and the pharmaceutical industry.

Two fields of research (areas of specialization) are available to MSc and PhD students: Pathology and One Health. 

Research Field: Pathology

Pathology is the scientific study of disease processes. Pathology applies basic research techniques in biochemistry, cell biology, genetics, immunology, and molecular biology to the study of mechanisms of cell and tissue injury and the pathogenesis of disease.

Research Field: One Health

One Health is an integrated effort across multiple disciplines working locally, nationally and globally to attain optimal health for humans, animals and the environment. One Health recognizes that the health of humans, animals, and the environment are inextricably linked as ‘one’.
