Genetic Pathology

The deciphering of the human genome and associated epigenome is creating many new opportunities to improve the diagnosis and management of human diseases arising from inherited, sporadic or somatic genomic variants. Genetic pathologists contribute to the multidisciplinary range of skills required within pathology services to aid in the diagnosis, management and treatment of patients with disorders arising from genomic mutations. In addition to sound background knowledge of cell biology and human genetics, genetic pathologists require a growing range of computing, informatics and statistical skills to analyse the high volumes of genomic data, which are generated by technology platforms such as massively parallel sequencing. Genetic pathologists provide specialist advice to laboratory and clinical colleagues regarding test selection and interpretation of results of biochemical genetic and medical genomic assays.

Haematology is another rapidly developing discipline which deals with many aspects of those diseases which affect the blood such as anaemia, leukemia, lymphoma, and clotting or bleeding disorders.

Immunopathology

Immunology is a specialty, like haematology, which often involves both laboratory medicine (the testing of specimens collected from patients) and clinical practice (interviewing, examining and advising patients about clinical problems).

Microbiology

Microbiology deals with diseases caused by infectious agents such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. Microbiologists have roles both in the laboratory and directly in patient care.
