Infrastructure

In addition to their departmental colleagues, Pathology faculty researchers interact extensively with basic and clinical scientists throughout the Center for Health Sciences, which includes Schools of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health, as well as life sciences faculty in the College of Letters and Science and the School of Engineering on the adjacent UCLA main campus. This vast biomedical and clinical research infrastructure, which is duplicated in few institutions, facilitates access to advanced instrumentation as well as the expertise of their faculty colleagues in multiple disciplines. Pathology research laboratories are located in the Center for Health Sciences, the Factor Building, the MacDonald Research Laboratories, and the newly opened Terasaki Life Sciences Buildings - home to the Broad Stem Cell Research Center.
