From diagnosing disease to discovering the biologic pathways underlying human development, the Department of Pathology and Medicine at Brown is a dynamic hub of research, clinical practice, and education. Our faculty work across the university campus and our affiliated hospitals on a wide array of interdisciplinary research, and are committed to training the next generation of clinical pathologists and scientists.
Diagnostic testing in pathology and laboratory medicine is performed at our affiliated hospital partners; a total of 90 faculty are located at facilities at Brown University campus in Providence, Rhode Island Hospital, The Miriam Hospital, Women and Infants' Hospital, the Providence VA Medical Center, and the Office of the Medical Examiner at the Rhode Island Department of Health.
Teaching and Research
All campus and hospital-based faculty participate in teaching and advising undergraduates, graduate students, medical students, residents, and postdoctoral and clinical fellows. These trainees work together in multidisciplinary teams involving pathologists, biomedical scientists, clinicians, chemists, and engineers on basic and applied research projects related to human disease.
