Pathology Residency Research Opportunities

Residents in NYU Langone’s Department of Pathology have ample opportunities to pursue research projects. We strongly encourage all trainees to participate and most residents become involved in one or more projects over the course of their training.

For those residents interested in pursuing an academic clinical research career, we offer the anatomic pathology and research track (also known as the physician–scientist pathway), which includes six months of dedicated research time. Upon completion, residents on this track may be accepted into a two- or three-year postdoctoral training program.

We provide dedicated funding for research projects through our Translational Research Program, which is open to all pathology residents and fellows. This program enables trainees to pursue research under the guidance of faculty research mentors. The rate of project approval is high, and those who have strong proposals are likely to be funded. Once projects are selected, residents receive financial, intellectual, and administrative support as they develop their projects and navigate various approval processes.

We also strongly encourage collaboration between clinical and basic researchers throughout the department. We have various active research programs, and host frequent events including Works in Progress talks, biweekly experimental pathology seminars, and an annual Pathology Retreat.

Thanks to the department’s support for resident-led research, our residents are highly productive academically. A large number present at annual meetings hosted by the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP), the College of American Pathologists, and the American Society for Clinical Pathology, as well as many other national and international meetings.

Featured Publications and Presentations

Our residents often publish and present the results of their innovative research.
