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.
