At the forefront of medical research and discovery, the Pathobiology Specialist Program offers you the opportunity to study the causes and mechanisms of disease and their resulting impact on human health.

  • Investigate pivotal questions such as: 
  • Why do certain cells become cancerous? 
  • Why do particular neurons degenerate? 
  • Why did that atherosclerotic plaque form? 

These and similar questions are fundamental to making medical breakthroughs.
