The scientific theme of the department is the study of the morphogenesis and pathogenesis of the main human diseases. The features of various forms of connective tissue dysplasia, lung diseases, various aspects of diseases of the urogenital system, issues of chronic inflammation and repair mechanisms are studied at the photooptical, electron microscopic, molecular-genetic level. Work continues on the study of alcoholic illness. Currently, among the faculty of the Department of Pathological Anatomy, there are 10 doctors and 9 candidates of medical sciences.
