Detection of RNA transcription using click chemistry. Incorporation of uridine analog
5-ethynyluridine (EU) into RNA (bright red) in mixed neuron-glia cultures. EU staining
is mostly nuclear (blue) with some cytoplasmic punctate pattern. Within the nucleus,
there is a strong nucleolar staining. The nucleolus is the place where rRNAs are synthesized
(courtesy Hernandez's laboratory).

Welcome to the Department of Pathology.
Our department sits at the interface of basic science and clinical medicine. Our faculty,
both scientists and pathologists, study the mechanisms of disease at the cellular
and molecular level. We invite you to learn more about us and our roles in diagnostic
pathology, research and education.
