Welcome to Upstate Medical University’s Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. Our Department has a long history of scholarship, discovery, education and innovation with a promising future ahead. We are a fully integrated academic department with Divisions that cover most pathology specialty areas. We are innovating in digital imaging, telepathology, bioinformatics and molecular diagnostics.

We have recently opened the region's only Cord Blood Bank and have several exciting industry collaborations in place. Our Department is a key component of the Upstate Cancer Center. This is a program focused on preparing pathology residents and fellows to be partners in delivering care that is predictive, preventative, personalized and participatory.

The Department enjoys a faculty of 36 physicians and laboratory scientists representing the most comprehensive roster of specialty pathologists in the region. The depth of expertise is unique to our Department and is offered as a resource to other laboratories and physicians in the Central New York community.

Our department emphasizes exceptional quality and service, striving to exceed the expectations of patients and clinicians. As the science progresses in identifying specific disease targets making personalized medicine a reality, our Pathology Department will be a resource in providing guidance to clinicians and patients to make informed treatment decisions based on evidence.
