clinical services in Brown's department of pathology

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine provides a wide range of anatomic and clinical diagnostic pathology services. Board-certified pathologists, many with advanced subspecialty training, work together with physicians and laboratory technical staff to provide expert consultation on prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of human disease.

Pathologists are vital team members for diagnosis and treatment of cancer involving the breast, lung, gastrointestinal tract, head and neck, prostate, urinary tract, and female reproductive system. Our pathologists are involved in interdisciplinary clinical and translational research teams to improve diagnosis and treatment of patients with Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative disease, cancer, diabetes and metabolic disease, perinatal and reproductive disease, adverse pregnancy outcomes, and cancer.
