Collaborative Research Laboratory

The Department of Pathology and ARUP Laboratory are creating a collaborative laboratory research service to promote both clinical and more basic research at The University Health Sciences Center and the University of Utah.

The Department of Pathology and ARUP Laboratory are creating a collaborative laboratory research service to promote both clinical and more basic research at The University Health Sciences Center and the University of Utah. This page lists the Department of Pathology Faculty, who also serve as Medical Directors at ARUP Laboratories, along with their respective laboratories and major research interests. University faculty wishing to establish an ongoing active collaboration can contact any of the listed individuals to involve them in test selection, new test development, study design, and grant applications. Internally funded and NIH funded projects involving such a collaboration will be essentially at costs. Industry funded proposals will be negotiated.
