The Department of Pathology is one of the largest Departments in the School of Biological Sciences, and a leading research institution with a yearly research income of £9M. The Department's research seeks to understand - and so ultimately arrest and reverse - disease processes of medical and social significance. The work of the Department is organised into five Divisions: Cell and Molecular Pathology, Immunology, Microbiology and Parasitology, Virology and Molecular Histopathology, split between the University site and Addenbrooke's Hospital, as well as undertaking cross-disciplinary research with colleagues at Research Institutes including the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research and the Hutchison-MRC Institute for Cancer Research.
The Department also has a major yearly commitment in the teaching and training to over 800 undergraduate students of medicine and of veterinary and natural science. In its research laboratories it provides training for over 70 graduate students. Members of the Department also contribute, together with colleagues in the National Health Service and Health Protection Agency, to provision of diagnostic services within Addenbrooke's Hospital and the Anglia Region.
