University of Edinburgh


Members of the Division of Pathology have major research interests in human cancer biology, cell and tissue injury, inflammation, fibrosis, transplant pathology, immunopathology, osteoarthritis and neuropathological disorders. The Division of 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. The Division 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 the division partake, makes it a favourable environment in which to combine fundamental cell biological and applied clinical studies of human disease.
