Department of Pathology

Pathology department chair David Klimstra leads a team that reviews thousands of samples each year and generates more than 125,000 diagnostic reports.

The Department of Pathology at Memorial Sloan Kettering consists of disease-specific pathologists, molecular diagnosticians, and researchers with expertise in a range of solid tumor types as well as hematopathology. Our pathologists collaborate with other specialists to customize each patient’s treatment based on his or her individual diagnosis. Molecular pathology and precision medicine are increasingly vital components of the work we do.
