Research Unit of Pathology (Odense)
Pathology is the study of disease. It bridges between basic sciences, such as human biology and molecular biology, and medicine. Pathology is critical in patient care and contributes with diagnosis, prognostic information for planning of treatment, and predictive analyzes for choice of drugs. Pathology plays an important role in research and in advancing medicine to fight diseases such as cancer, chronic inflammation, and degenerative diseases. Recently, the Department of Pathology turned digital and the primary diagnostic work is now performed on scans of the stained tissue sections.
