Pathology, the study of the essential nature of disease, uses a wide variety of approaches to elucidate mechanisms responsible for disease. Because of its close academic and clinical ties with the QEII Health Sciences Centre and the Izaak Walton Killam Health Centre for Children, Women and Families which provide tertiary care for the entire Canadian Maritime region, the Dalhousie Pathology Department is able to offer an unsurpassed milieu in which to pursue experimental pathology.
