Pathology is the study of disease. Understanding how and why a disease develops is the foundation of Pathology. Cancer, asthma, and heart attacks are just some of many disease processes studied in pathology. This multidisciplinary field draws from basic sciences of anatomy, cell biology, genetics, immunology, and physiology to study the cause, origin and nature of diseases. Deciphering the mechanism of diseases have led to major advances in medical approaches, such as vaccines against infectious diseases, organ transplantation, safe blood transfusion, genetics and forensics.
