Course summary

Members of Edinburgh Pathology have major research interests in human cancer biology, cell and tissue injury, inflammation, fibrosis, transplant pathology, immunopathology, osteoarthritis, neuropathological disorders, and animal and cell models of disease processes. Edinburgh Pathology has academic staff as key members of most of the centres and institutes within the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, reflecting the collaborative and overarching role of pathology in translational medicine. There are also close links to research and development within the hospitals across Edinburgh. Edinburgh Pathology also includes the Centre for Comparative Pathology that studies animal models of disease. The large diagnostic NHS histopathology service based in the Royal Infirmary Edinburgh and Western General Hospital, in which members of Edinburgh Pathology partake, makes it a favourable environment in which to combine fundamental cell biological and applied clinical studies of human disease.
