The Graduate Program in Experimental Pathology was created to provide students with the knowledge and skills to investigate the underlying mechanisms of human disease caused by human infectious agents or toxins using the latest scientific approaches. Our trainees develop critical scientific investigational skills including experimental design, data analysis and interpretation, communication of research data (written and oral), and safe and ethical laboratory research.
Experimental Pathology is a biomedical discipline focused on unraveling the mechanisms associated with human disease. This discipline examines mechanisms by which molecular, cellular, and structural changes are involved in the disease process.
There are five specific objectives of the program:
Jere W. McBride, Ph.D.
Professor, Department of Pathology
Center for Biodefense and Emerging Infectious Diseases
Sealy Center for Vaccine Development
