The Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine is an integral part of the vibrant UCLA research enterprise and includes faculty members with a broad array basic, translational, and of clinical research interests in areas that include Bioinformatics, Cancer Biology, Immunology/Inflammation, Metabolism, Neuroscience, and Regenerative Medicine. Departmental researchers seek to better understand disease pathogenesis and translate these findings to the clinic. Departmental research has continued to thrive and grow over the past decade. Our faculty publish their findings in many of the top biomedical journals such as Cell, Immunity, Molecular Cell, Nature Immunology, and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Faculty researchers generated over $37 million in active extramural funding, including $26 million from NIH, for FY2016.
