Postdoctoral Research

The Department of Pathology & Immunology provides numerous opportunities for postdoctoral research. Important areas of emphasis include immunobiology, cell biology, microbial pathogenesis and the pathobiology of diabetes.

Postdoctoral fellows apply directly to the head of the laboratory responsible. Postdoctoral fellows are supervised by the laboratory director, but are welcome to participate in a wide range of conferences and other academic activities offered by the department.

The Jack H. Ladenson Fellows in Experimental Clinical Pathology was established by the Department of Pathology and Immunology in honor of Dr. Jack H. Ladenson who has made numerous important contributions to clinical pathology, the LGM Division and the Department of Pathology and Immunology at Washington University over the 37 years that he has been a faculty member in the department. Dr. Ladenson’s research has focused on the development of clinical tests for the diagnosis of common cardiovascular diseases including myocardial infarction, and his work has lead to the development of several tests commonly used to diagnose heart attacks around the world.

The Jack H. Ladenson Fellows in Experimental Clinical Pathology will be residents or fellows in their final years of training that, in the view of the faculty, show exceptional promise for careers in academic clinical pathology. The support for fellows will be structured to best help them achieve their research goals and establish the foundation for their independent careers in the final years of their fellowship training.
