The Laboratory of Pathology of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) is an integral component of the research and clinical community at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Our goal is to be a globally recognized center of excellence in disease research, clinical diagnostics, and pathology education.

The mission of the Laboratory of Pathology is to achieve the highest level of quality in research, diagnostics, and education.

We support the research mission of the NCI and the NIH by:

- investigating the biology and genetics of cancer and other diseases
- developing and applying leading edge technology to diagnostic pathology
- providing collaborative support for clinical research protocols

In this endeavor, we value scientific originality, integrity, and productivity while maintaining the highest level of ethical principles.

We take responsibility for Anatomic Pathology services for the NIH as well as others who seek our expertise through consultation. Our goal is to provide the most accurate diagnostic interpretation in the most efficient manner, supported by a commitment to quality improvement.

Through the training of residents and fellows in diagnostics and research, we create future leaders in clinical and experimental pathology. As an organization, we share our expertise and teaching with the clinical and scientific community.
