In a recently published Nature Reviews-Nephrology review article, “Digital pathology and computational image analysis in nephropathology,” Dr. Ulysses G. J. Balis discussed how the emergence of digital pathology — an image-based environment for the acquisition, management, and interpretation of pathology information supported by computational techniques for data extraction and analysis — is changing the pathology ecosystem [...]
The University of Michigan will begin a Sampling and Testing Program of asymptomatic students, faculty and staff for the virus that causes COVID-19 on September 7.
In a broadly collaborative effort, Pathology faculty Drs. Carl Schmidt, Jeffrey Myers, Kristine Konopka, Paul Lephart, and Teresa Nguyen joined Michigan Medicine faculty from the departments of Epidemiology, Internal Medicine, Microbiology and Immunology, Mathematics and Complex Systems, and the School of Public Health in a study published in Clinical Infectious Diseases entitled “SARS-CoV-2 surveillance in decedents in a large, urban medical examiner’s office.”
Structural biology techniques helped researchers target the nuclear receptor-binding SET domain family, whose malfunction is associated with several types of cancer.
"Patient advocacy and engagement is essential to provide high quality care. Your dedication to empower other patients through education and awareness has made big contributions to the life-changing impact of patient-pathology interactions.” So begins the award letter to Michele Mitchell from the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP), who is awarding Michele the ASCP Patient Champion Award for 2020...
In a new study, Chan Chung et al. from the Venneti laboratory have discovered a “catch 22”-like phenomena, where epigenetic and metabolic pathways feed one another, in a childhood brain tumor called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Gliomas (DIPG) [...]
When people think about forensic pathology, images of crime shows where an investigator sets out to determine a murder victim’s cause of death often come to mind. However, it’s important to acknowledge the crucial role this field actually plays in our collective response to death, especially as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unravel...
Dr. Vincent Laufer was recently awarded the 2020 William Boyd Medal for the Outstanding Student in Pathology. The award is given to a medical student who demonstrates outstanding expertise in all aspects of their pathology education [...]
