Research Day

Our Tenth Annual Pathology Research Day was held on Tuesday, October 6, 2015. Morning research presentations by faculty, trainees and staff took place in the H.P. Smith Conference Room (W256 GH) and the plenary presentation, given by Dr. Jeffrey Golden was held at 1:00 PM in the Prem Sahai Auditorium (1110 MERF). The afternoon poster session was held in the Eckstein Medical Research Building Atrium with 40 posters presented. The event was an opportunity for Pathology researchers from all quarters of the Department to share their research projects, latest findings and recent presentations at national meetings. Collectively, there was a full schedule of cutting edge work encompassing a variety of basic, translational and clinical topics.


Jeffrey A. Golden, M.D.

Dr. Golden’s plenary talk was titled “Neurodevelopmental Disabilities: The Interneuron Perspective” and highlighted his work exploring the genetics of epilepsy and autism in children. He also gave a seminar Wednesday morning titled “Computational Pathology and its role in Precision Medicine”. The latter presentation focused on a second interest of his, that of molecular pathology and informatics. Dr. Golden is the Head of the Department of Pathology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, and the Ramzi S. Cotran Professor of Pathology, Harvard Medical School.
