The Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine is comprised of four major divisions created in an effort to increase coordination and communication between the many research programs within the department. They also serve to maximize resources and increase awareness of our expertise in several areas. Our four divisions are listed below:
Dr Bruce Wainman
The division of Anatomy represents a smaller but well-defined area of activity within the department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine. It is responsible for the anatomy component in all of the educational programs offered in the Faculty of Health Sciences. In addition, this division conducts basic research under the discipline of Anatomy.
Dr John Waye
The division of Clinical Pathology encompasses the disciplines of hematology, genetics, microbiology, clinical chemistry, immunology and histocompatibility. The primary mandate of this division is to provide clinical services to hospitals in the Hamilton region, facilitated through the Hamilton Regional Laboratory Medicine Program.
Dr Vina Alexopoulou
The division of Anatomical Pathology maintains close ties with hospitals in the Hamilton region through the Hamilton Regional Laboratory Medicine Program. Its focus is centered on clinical investigation in the area of anatomical pathology.
The division of Molecular Medicine entails the majority of primary basic research conducted within the department.
