Experimental Pathology Graduate Program

General Information

The Experimental Pathology (ExPath) Ph.D. Program

The ExPath Ph.D. Program emphasizes research on disease mechanisms, built upon a strong foundation of training in cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics and bioinformatics. Students in this program draw upon the wide range of expertise at Yale University in all areas of contemporary biology and pathology.

The ExPath program is the home program for most faculty members of the Pathology Department, who share an overarching common goal of training students in understanding the mechanistic basis of human disease. ExPath faculty have great strengths in areas of cell and molecular biology, signal transduction, mitochondrial disease and aging, cytoskeleton, virology, cancer biology, immunology, vascular and endothelial cell biology, bioinformatics, and the study of model genetic organisms (e.g. mouse and yeast).
