The Michigan Center for Translational Pathology
(MCTP) was founded in 2007 under the directorship of Dr. Arul Chinnaiyan, as a collaborative effort between the University of Michigan Department of Pathology, Medical School, and Comprehensive Cancer Center to foster research advances in molecular medicine and apply those advances as quickly as possible to benefit patient care. Our mission is to:
Establish the University of Michigan as the international leader in the discovery and characterization of disease biomarkers and therapeutic targets using an integrated multi-disciplinary, systems biology approach.
Establish a new paradigm of bringing personalized medicine to routine clinical care through the use of high-throughput sequencing.
