Clinical and basic research are major aspects of the Department’s programs. Almost all faculty are engaged in research with the aim of discovering new knowledge and/or developing ways to apply new knowledge to improve diagnosis and management of disease.
The research programs within the University, including Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, have grown dramatically in recent years as evidenced by funding levels and awards. The Department offers M.S. and Ph.D training through the MD Anderson Cancer Center UTHealth Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS).
