Welcome to the Department
of Pathology and Molecular Medicine

boagI am delighted to have recently assumed the role of Head in the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine (DPMM) at Queen’s. This is an exciting time of growth and innovation in our Department which is uniquely placed at the interfaces between basic biomedical sciences, clinical laboratory services and the emerging field of personalized molecular medicine.

DPMM is home to many vibrant research programs with focussed areas of excellence including cancer biology and molecular hemostasis. We host the Queen’s Laboratory for Molecular Pathology core research facility and also the Canadian Cancer Trials Group tumour bank. The well established DPMM Graduate program offers Master’s and PhD degrees and a recently added a combined BScH/MSc degree that allows students to transition 4th year undergraduate research projects into accelerated Master’s degrees.

Dr. Sandip SenGupta at the Innovators Exchange symposia

Posted 2017 November 13

Dr. Sandip SenGupta was invited to speak in Taiwan and in Vietnam (November 3 and 4) at the Innovators Exchange symposia, sponsored by Abbott Diagnostics, to a group of southeast Asian hospital and private laboratory managers and directors.
The theme of the conferences was "Discover the hidden potential of your laboratory's data". Dr. SenGupta's lecture was entitled: "Digital Transformation of a Healthcare Enterprise Begins with a Service-Focused, Operationally Efficient Laboratory".
He discussed the importance of creating and demonstrating value through the clinical laboratory for our healthcare ecosystem and presented the results of how the recent implementation of the AlinIQ Business Intelligence System in the Core Laboratory at the Kingston Health Sciences Centre has helped to improve performance of our laboratory, including better turnaround times for test results and opportunities for growth through repatriation of referred out tests.
