About the Department

The Department of Pathology at Stanford School of Medicine is in Palo Alto on the Stanford University campus. We work with Stanford Healthcare, Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital, and the Veterans Administration Palo Alto Health Care System.

Our approximately 105 faculty, 30 graduate students, 60 residents and clinical fellows, and 75 postdoctoral fellows benefit greatly from this close, collaborative, and vibrant community.

Our faculty’s expertise covers a broad range that spans from discovery in fundamental science to innovation in clinical application. Particular areas of strength are bioinformatics, cancer biology, cell cycle regulation, genomics, inflammation, immunology, neurobiology, signal transduction, and stem cell research.
