The Research Programs of the Department of Pathology represent one of the many strengths of our academic mission. Our research faculty successfully compete for extramural research support, attract outstanding graduate students and fellows from both the national and international scene, publish in highly visible, peer-reviewed scientific journals, and serve on numerous national and international scientific committees.

Our research faculty hold 86 individual grants from the National Institutes of Health, including:

Two Program Projects in the area of immunopathology

Two Training Grants in the areas of immunopathology and geriatrics

Two MERIT Awards

Other support originates from numerous external non-federal sources including: the American Heart Association, the Pew Charitable Trusts, American Lung Association, the MEDC Life Science Corridor Fund, American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, American Federation for Agining Research, Sidney Kimmel Foundation, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the National Blood Foundation, PKD Foundation, Muscular Dystrophy Association, United Negro College Fund, University Foundation, Cap Cure, Chron's and Colitis Foundation and Kennedy's Disease Foundation.

Our faculty actively participate in the support of institutional initiatives, including the University of Michigan Cancer Center, Urology SPORE Program, Breast Cancer Program, Interstitial Lung Disease SCOR, and the acute lung injury SCCOR. This blend of activity underscores the role of Pathology faculty in translational research, especially where DNA-based microarrays and tissue arrays are involved. These studies have resulted in publications dealing with solid tumors and inflammatory diseases. The faculty actively publish in both the clinical and experimental arena and cover very diverse scientific interests, including clinical pathology, anatomical pathology, and basic cellular and molecular mechanisms of disease. Our faculty participates in peer review of NIH grant applications and peer-review of submitted scientific articles for diverse journals.

Another index of the healthy academic research environment in the Department of Pathology is the large number of post-doctoral fellows completing training in the different laboratories. Over 40 post-doctoral fellows representing many nationalities and countries are engaged in research activities and clinical fellowships. These post-doctoral scholars have actively sought positions in the Department of Pathology to enhance their research and clinical careers.

Our faculty continue to provide expertise for both internal and external program review including serving as ad hoc and permanent members of NIH study sections, serving as committee members for site visit teams, providing expertise on government sponsored special emphasis panels, and organizing or chairing clinical and experimental scientific conferences.
