The Experimental Pathology Graduate Program is committed to building and maintaining a supportive community in which students from diverse backgrounds and experiences are supported in their professional development and social and intellectual goals. We strive to create an inviting environment and institutional culture of inclusivity where every individual’s unique and diverse characteristics are valued and respected. We hope that you will feel well integrated and at home.

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).
