Welcome to UNC Pathology & Laboratory Medicine

Graduate Studies

Our Graduate Program in Molecular and Cellular Pathology (MCP) provides a unique environment for predoctoral and postdoctoral training in experimental pathology. Nationally and internationally renowned investigators provide laboratory research opportunities that use multifaceted approaches and state-of-the-art techniques to explore the pathogenesis of a wide range of human diseases.

Clinical Training Programs

Our Residency Program in anatomic and clinical pathology is an ACGME-accredited, four-year training program. We also offer Fellowships in clinical chemistry, clinical cytogenetics, clinical molecular genetics, molecular genetic pathology, cytopathology, forensic pathology, hematopathology, microbiology, nephropathology, surgical pathology, and transfusion medicine.

Research Core Laboratories

Research services for scientists are available in the Translational Pathology Lab, the Animal Clinical Chemistry & Gene Expression Labs, the Microscopy Services Lab, and the Oligonucleotide Synthesis Core Facility.

Clinical Laboratories

The McLendon Clinical Laboratories provide services in anatomic pathology and laboratory medicine to UNC Hospitals. The web site includes available tests, test specifications, and a directory.
