Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine

Scholarly Activity

As an integral part of their growth and development, residents are given several opportunities to participate in departmental research activities. Clinically-oriented research is ongoing in all sections of the laboratory and interdepartmental research provides the opportunity to collaborate with hematology/oncology, transplantation pathology, surgery and gastroenterology. Basic research programs in breast cancer, prostate cancer, neuropathology, nutrition, immunology, and proteomics are available on both the Sacramento and UC Davis campuses. In addition, biophotonics, informatics and bioengineering are other areas of active research paving the way for new technologies in the digital age of pathology.

Each resident is required to participate in an original scientific project with the goal of publication in a peer review journal.  Residents also are encouraged to present their research findings at regional and national conferences, including USCAP, CAP, AABB and UCDMC research symposiums.  The Department offers a generous annual travel stipend (Travel Award Policy and Procedure).
