The Pathology and Laboratory Medicine master’s program at Boston University was founded in 2003 by Dr. Adrianne Rogers, professor emeritus of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine and former associate chair of the department and Chris Andry, MPhil, PhD, the current Vice Chair and program director. Graduates are prepared to work in basic science, biotechnology, clinical pathology, and other biomedical research laboratories designing, performing, and evaluating research. Students learn to prepare and evaluate animal or human cells and tissues for the effects of test compounds, devices, or procedures using morphologic, molecular, and other methods.
Techniques include gross, microscopic, and ultrastructural techniques for examination of cells and tissues, including histochemical staining and immunohistochemical staining, immunofluorescence, and molecular methods; and certain clinical chemistry, hematological and immunological, methods for examination of blood tissue or other bodily fluids or extracts. Offerings include, but are not limited to, the following specialized techniques in the basic laboratory rotations or in the student’s laboratory research project: laser capture techniques, in situ hybridization including fluorescence detection (FISH), molecular techniques, proteomics, and confocal or electron microscopy, image analysis, and virtual pathology. Students learn and rotate in modern, well-equipped laboratories on the BU Medical Campus and at Boston Medical Center.
