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.

Successful grant application

Posted 2016 May 30

Dr. Xiaolong Yang has successfully been awarded a research grant of $447,500 over 4 years from the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) to investigate how a novel signaling pathway called the Hippo pathway plays important roles in breast cancer progression, metastasis, and drug resistance.

The research findings from this project will not only establish the Hippo pathway as a central player and "druggable" target for breast cancer and also provide preclinical data for targeting of this pathway for successful breast cancer therapy in the future.
