Welcome to the Department
of Pathology and Molecular Medicine


Welcome to the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine of Queen’s University.  Our Department is uniquely placed at the interface between basic biomedical science and clinical medicine.  Our dedicated faculty deliver a broad array of highly integrated programs in fundamental and translational research, diagnostic laboratory services and education. In doing so, our Department has a distinctive role in the School of Medicine in that it serves as both a basic science department, with its attendant academic responsibilities, and a clinical department responsible for the delivery of complex laboratory services in the teaching hospitals.

Working to beat breast cancer

Posted 2015 July 29

From http://www.queensu.ca/gazette/stories/working-beat-breast-cancer

Four Queen's researchers receive funding from the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) is providing over $1 million in funding to four Queen's University researchers who are investigating different aspects of breast cancer including testing, metastasis and the immune system.

Peter Greer (Pathology and Molecular Medicine) has received $450,000 over three years. Dr. Greer's research explores interactions between cancer cells and the immune system. He is working to coax the immune system back into action and stimulate cancer immunity against invading cancer cells using oncolytic viruses.
