Department of Pathology

Our mission is to elucidate and understand disease mechanisms to improve human wellbeing.

The Department of Pathology at NYU Langone Health has been a pioneer in the field of pathology since its inception in the 1880s. Our interdisciplinary team of anatomic and clinical pathologists, educators, and translational and basic scientists work to advance our knowledge of disease mechanisms, provide cutting-edge clinical diagnostic services, and educate the next generation of leaders in pathology.

Our board-certified pathologists provide diagnostic expertise in anatomic pathology and clinical laboratory medicine for the patients we serve at NYU Langone, its affiliated hospitals, outreach services, and physicians’ practices.

Our research faculty work in diverse areas, including fundamental aspects of immunology, antitumor immunity, molecular oncology, metabolism, and neurodegeneration.

We are home to two graduate training programs, one in molecular oncology and tumor immunology and one in immunology and inflammation, which place PhD students in cutting-edge basic and translational research laboratories; an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education–accredited residency with several tracks; and fellowships in multiple pathology subspecialties.


Our research faculty lead innovative studies to explore fundamental aspects of disease mechanisms.


Our events bring pathologists together to discuss the latest research advances.
