About Columbia University
The Department of Pathology and Cell Biology (https://www.pathology.columbia.edu) has a rich history dating back to 1767 and the appointment of faculty in both the Department of Anatomy and Department of Physiology and Pathology at King’s College, the pre-American Revolutionary War forerunner of Columbia University. The current Department of Pathology and Cell Biology arose from the 2005 merger of the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology with the Department of Pathology and reflects the close link between the study of cell biological processes and the understanding of disease pathogenesis. The foundations for the department were laid by many remarkably talented and diverse individuals, including such luminaries as Drs. Delafield, Prudden, Stout, Frantz, King, Axel and Shelanski. This tradition of achievement carries on today and the department ranks first nationally in the discipline of pathology for the number of NIH grant awards and consistently in the top five departments of pathology for total NIH funding.
