Organized into clinical divisions around a number of specialized services, department staff analyze blood and tissue samples in a laboratory setting, using cellular, genetic molecular and bioinformatic technology. The department also works closely with the Center for Personalized Diagnostics and the Abramson Cancer Center to uncover genetic mutations within a patient's own cancer that can allow for a more targeted and personalized "precision" treatment strategy.
As an academic department, pathology and laboratory medicine is also involved in research and resident graduate education at the Perelman School of Medicine.
