Congratulations to Rayanna Birtch

Congratulations to Rayanna Birtch on winning first price for her poster presentation at the Canadian Undergraduate Conference on Healthcare on November 9th. 2019.  Rayanna is in the combined BSc-MSc program with Dr. Peter Greer in the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine.  Her project explores functional interactions between the adaptor protein Ezrin and the cancer stem cell marker CD44 in highly aggressive triple negative breast cancer.

new website

As of this morning (Oct 29) the Department's old website landing page is now forwarding to this, our new website.  It is more compliant with accessibility standards, better suited for mobile platforms, and falls in line with University and Faculty guidelines.

In addition the new domain name of "pathology.queensu.ca" is more intuitive than our older "www.path.queensu.ca" from back in 1992 when we first created a website.

Queen's and Pathology Matters!

Queen's and Pathology Matters!

The Ontario Molecular Pathology Research Network (OMPRN) annual "Pathology Matters" meeting took place on Monday at the Canada Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa.

Our Department was extremely well represented at the meeting. Nearly a quarter of the roughly 100 attendees were from Queen's, Queen's Faculty members contributed heavily to planning and running the meeting, and three of the four "Outstanding Poster Awards" went to Queen's trainees.

Congratulations to Chelsea Jackson, Christina Ferrone and Lina Chen and many thanks to all involved for helping to make this meeting a smashing success!
