The Clinical Pathology group comprises a number of diagnosticians, clinicians, scientists and laboratory technicians investigating various aspects related to laboratory medicine and clinical diagnosis. The work takes place in the Diagnostic Laboratories by the laboratory staff but there is a continuous and close collaboration with other Comparative and Clinical research groups such as the Small Animal Medicine group.
The main activities of the Clinical Pathology group include the evaluation and validation of laboratory diagnostic equipment, development and clinical evaluation of novel diagnostic tests and performance of studies based on analysis of clinicopathological data.
