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.
