About our department

Our research

Pathology is a medical specialism emphasizing patient diagnosis. For diseases and so-called cancer precursor lesions as detected in population based programmed screening (cervical-, breast- and colon cancer). In fact, this applies to all ailments and diseases where morphology, as determined by microscopic, immunohistochemical and molecular methods, are essential for the diagnosis. Pathologists are involved in all tumour- multidisciplinary meetings (MDM's) in the Erasmus MC. Bases on pathology results, treatment decisions, increasingly precise, can be made.

At the department of pathology of the Erasmus MC, staff and personal is also engaged with tuition (bachelor and master students, PhD student, residents in pathology). Pathology is a specialty with a large scope and plays a role both in fundamentals and final patient management in the curriculum of medicine. A considerably part of the resources is dedicated to research in order to understand disease and contribute to better treatment. Researchers collaborate with other departments and the Pathology cell- and tissue ban.

Principal Investigators

Research lines

Clinical and Translational Research Program of Genito Urinary Medical Oncology

This research group initiates and collaborates in investigator, as well as Industry initiated and sponsored phase 1-3 clinical trials, as well as translational research in urological cancers.

De Maat Lab

Understanding the biochemistry of haemostasis and thrombosis leads to optimal treatment of disease bleeding and thrombotic

Erasmus MC Tissue Bank

Making tissues collected for diagnostic purposes available for research following the appropriate rules and legislation, guidelines and standards.

Group Dinjens

Moleculair research

Group Fodde

The main research goal of our laboratory is the elucidation of the molecular and cellular basis of tumor initiation and progression, and the translation of these mechanisms into preventive and therapeutic intervention.

Group Houtsmuller

In vivo dynamics and reaction kinetics from nuclear process

Group Kros
