The Department of Pathology & Immunology at Washington University School of Medicine, founded in 1910, has a century-long academic mission focused on research, teaching and patient care. Dr. Lauren V. Ackerman joined the department in 1948 and essentially founded the discipline of surgical pathology. Our subspecialized surgical pathology team use genomic testing to add value to morphologic-based diagnoses in routine clinical practice. We provide primary diagnosis and second opinion consultations in 14 surgical pathology subspecialties. Ancillary genomic testing and technical-component only processing is available as well. Please see OUR EXPERTS for more information.
