With every advance in molecular and cell biology, our understanding of the mechanisms of disease at the molecular and genetic levels continues to grow. We can translate this understanding into better tests and treatments.
Our experts are constantly translating new discoveries and novel technologies into useful clinical tests that provide a molecular fingerprint of diseases and offer clues that help us identify drugs that target specific abnormalities.
In Molecular and Genomic Pathology, we apply our expertise and diagnostic testing skills to the field of oncology. We can detect small numbers of malignant cells in tissue specimens through the use of molecular markers. Using powerful sequencing and imaging technology, our researchers are able to determine a tumor’s likelihood of progression and the genetic mutations it contains. This information helps increase the accuracy of pathologic diagnosis.
