Diseases are a part of life — and death. Not long ago we didn’t know the root cause of most common diseases, and there is still so much to learn. Discover how pathology has made rapid advances by looking at disease from all angles: molecular, cellular, tissue, functional, biochemical and immunological. Use cutting-edge medical research and the latest understanding of human biology and molecular genetics to understand the mechanisms behind disease. You could end up doing diagnostic pathology in a biotechnology lab, or complete further study for a career in disease research or as a medical pathologist.
