Welcome to UNC Pathology & Laboratory Medicine

Doctoral and Post-doctoral Studies

Our Graduate Program in Pathobiology and Translational Science offers a Ph.D. degree in experimental pathology and is also closely aligned with specialized graduate training certificate programs. Also available are Post-doctoral Fellowships both in research and in certain clinical laboratories. Graduate students and post-doctoral fellows are trained in nationally and internationally acclaimed laboratories that use multifaceted approaches and state-of-the-art methods and instrumentation to explore the pathogenesis of a wide range of human diseases.
