Molecular Anatomic Pathology

The Molecular Anatomic Pathology Laboratory in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine in the University of Kentucky offers a wide range of tests for specific genetic abnormalities in cancer. Our laboratory is fully CLIA-compliant and certified by the College of American Pathologists. In addition to clinical testing, we also offer these tests for research projects (contact the Director for additional information, click on the Molecular Anatomic Pathology Staff link to the right).
