Academic excellence in laboratory medicine and pathology

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at The Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine at The University of Vermont and The University of Vermont Medical Center is committed to excellence in teaching, research, service and the practice of clinical and anatomic pathology. We integrate academic medicine into patient care and the education of future health care providers and medical researchers.

Education

Our focus is on educational excellence for under-graduate, medical, graduate and post-graduate students. As a major educational resource to the health care professionals in the region and nation, our educational efforts focus on the development of critical thinkers with strong problem solving skills.

Science

Research

We excel in clinical and basic disease-related research. We align clinical research with the goals of the clinical enterprise and actively engage our clinical faculty. Basic research is focused in three areas: redox biology and pathology, cardiovascular disease, and histology research support. We actively engage residents and medical students.

Patient Care

We are a regional resource for laboratory diagnosis and treatment of human disease through our teaching and clinical partner The University of Vermont Medical Center. We provide complete, state-of-the-art diagnostic, consultative and therapeutic services, and work with providers to establish cost-effective high quality programs.

Dr's Leonard and HuberA Remarkable Gift from Dr. Sally Huber, Ph.D.

At the end of Research Day (2018), Dr. Leonard gave a surprise announcement: a very generous bequest of $5 million by research faculty emerita, Dr. Sally Huber! The funds will go toward two endowed professorships for junior investigators in our department. The endowments will be named for her parents, Elmer R. Huber and Blodwen S. Huber, and will support junior research faculty for five years.(9/2018)

This amazing support will allow junior faculty time and funds to gain independence while pursuing the milestone achievement of being awarded their first R01 grant.
