DescriptionThe Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine is a clinical department with a major research focus in cancer, hemostasis and vascular biology. Trainees therefore have opportunities to pursue comprehensive training in basic and translational biomedical research, an example being diagnostic, predictive and prognostic biomarker research. The graduate programs offer opportunities to pursue advanced degrees under the supervision of an exceptional group of basic, clinical and translational researchers.

With a focus on cancer – 15 of our 20 investigators are cancer biologists – our department members deliver comprehensive diagnostic laboratory and clinical services to Southeastern Ontario through the Kingston General Hospital, offering great training for the next generation of biomedical research scientists and laboratory physicians. Queen's therefore is a great setting to learn first-hand how the fast pace of molecular genetic research is changing clinical practise, leading to exciting new diagnostic and treatment approaches for cancer and other diseases.
