The UIC Division of Pathology Research has created a research community focused primarily on cancer prevention that is highly collaborative and multi-disciplinary. The fields of molecular biology, epidemiology, biomedical engineering, biostatistics and pathology are all represented among the research teams.   Projects involve the spectrum from tissue culture models to Federally funded, investigator initiated clinical trials.

With an emphasis on translational research, the UIC Division of Pathology Research prepares pathologists-in-training for careers as clinical investigators, and the Division has recently launched a novel graduate school curriculum for doctoral science candidates at the intersection of population science and pathology.
