Pathology is the branch of medicine that deals with the nature of disease. What causes disease? How can we detect it? How can we treat it? Although modern medicine has made great strides in understanding the causes of disease, we still have a considerable distance to go. The goal of research in the Department of Pathology is to extend our knowledge of the mechanisms of disease, especially at the molecular level. Such detailed information will hopefully lead to improved diagnoses, treatment, and eventually, prevention.
Basic research in the Department of Pathology includes programs in molecular and cellular immunology, microbial pathogenesis, autoimmunity, gene regulation, hematopoiesis, vesicular trafficking, and iron transport.
m&i - The Division of Microbiology and Immunology is strongly committed to providing quality graduate education to students interested in many aspects of Experimental Pathology.

The ARUP Institute for Clinical and Experimental Pathology is the R&D arm of ARUP Laboratories and is closely tied to the Department of Pathology. Anatomic and Clinical Pathology faculty are assigned research scientists and technologists within the Institute in order to develop and improve assays and perform other clinical and translational research. Career advancement for Institute staff is based on academic productivity, including peer reviewed articles and presentations at national meetings.
The mission of the Advanced Technology Group is to identify, develop and evaluate emerging technologies that show promise for clinical diagnostic applications. In an effort to meet its mission, the ATG serves as a resource for technologies and expertise for all groups within the ARUP Institute for Clinical and Experimental Pathology.
The Department of Pathology and ARUP Laboratory are creating a collaborative laboratory research service to promote both clinical and more basic research at The University Health Sciences Center and the University of Utah.
