There is no single site called “pathology”, but academic staff are key members of most of the centres within the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, reflecting the collaborative and over arching role of pathology in translational medicine. There are also close links to research and development within adjacent hospitals across Edinburgh.
The Division includes the Edinburgh Breakthrough Breast Cancer Research Unit, Scottish Academic Health Sciences Tissue Governance Unit, MRC Sudden Death Brain Bank and CJD Brain bank. Within Edinburgh, there are strong links with clinical colleagues and scientists across the University.
The large diagnostic histopathology service that the division undertakes makes it a favourable environment in which to combine fundamental cell biological and applied clinical studies of human disease.
The Pathology programme is offered by The University of Edinburgh.
