Organizational Chart

Pathology is the study of the nature of disease - its cell biology and biochemistry.  As a medical discipline, pathologists engage in patient care as consultants and innovators for biochemical, molecular, and cell biology tests that guide diagnostic and treatment choices.  Through these roles, the UCLA Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine assists health professionals and patients in making optimal decisions based on the latest diagnostic studies, using state-of-the-art instrumentation.  Each month, approximately 500,000 samples, including 10,000 biopsy and cytology cases, are analyzed to guide the care of patients in UCLA Healthcare, and through our regional and national referral network.  We integrate educational activities with our clinical service, and are active in clinical and translational research programs at UCLA.
