Morphological approaches underly our understanding of the mechanisms and effects of disease both clinically and experimentally. This underlies the contribution of this section to the College."

Professor Robert Goldin

Head of Section

Members of the Section of Pathology lead their own research groups and also work closely with other groups at Imperial and beyond.  Specific areas of expertise include lymphoma pathology, neuropathology and gynaecological pathology, renal pathology, hepato-biliary pathology and gastro-intestinal pathology.

There is expertise in a wide range of methods for analysing tissue. These include both immunohistochemical and molecular techniques as well as tissue scanning and image analysis. There is also expertise in developing and phenotyping animal models of disease.

Members also are involved in the design and analysis of clinical trials with pathological endpoints.

Head of Pathology - Professor Robert Goldin

Professor Goldin's interests lie in hepato-biliary and gastro-intestinal disease. His research has focused particularly on viral and fatty liver hepatitis, as well as gastro-intestinal malignancy (including neuro-endocrine tumours). He has also developed new approaches to analysing tissue using computational pathology, metabonomic and other imaging techniques.  As part of this, Professor Goldin has extensive experience of phenotyping mouse models of disease.  He also works at the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research in Oxford with a focus on translational research.
