- University of Toronto, Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology
To experience the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology (LMP) is to enter a world of boundless opportunities to interact with preeminent experts in state-of-the-art facilities, to challenge the current dogma in research and clinical practice, and to investigate the causes and mechanisms of disease and to impact health.
LMP occupies a special place at the nexus between basic biomedical science and clinical practice. The interactions between these spheres provide an incredible opportunity to translate new knowledge into improved health outcomes for patients and populations.
Each day, our laboratory clinicians across Ontario evaluate thousands of test results and biopsy specimens.
At the same time, our researchers are making innovative breakthroughs that bring us one step closer to curing and preventing disease.
By combining research with clinical practice, we are uniquely positioned to translate new findings into reality. As a result, we accurately diagnose and effectively treat patients and populations, making an impact locally, nationally, and internationally.
