Research is an option to donate to any research that
the organisation may find best fit under our key research priorities.
Pathology is the branch of pathology that deals
with the tissue diagnosis of disease. A tissue diagnosis is essential before starting treatment
involving major surgery, radiation or drugs, or treatments that may have major
Clinical Chemistry deals with the entire range of disease. It
encompasses detecting changes in a wide range of substances in blood and body
fluids (electrolytes, enzymes and proteins) in association with many diseases.
and Science operates to create better health
and justice systems. This involves providing expertise to support the coronial
justice system, protecting the health and safety of communities and utilising
world leading forensic analysis to help solve crimes.
Genomics is the study of all of a person's genes (the
genome), including interactions of those genes with each other and with the
Haematology is a 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.
Immunology is a specialty
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 deals with diseases caused by
infectious agents. The pathologists and scientists working here look for
specific bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites that may be causing a patient’s
Point of Care Testing means more patients have access to reliable pathology
tests. That means faster pathology results and receiving treatment
faster. NSW Health Pathology is the world’s largest accredited managed service
with more than 600 point of care devices.
Health pathology has experts across a range of areas,
including disease outbreaks, laboratory investigations for notifiable diseases,
responses to emerging diseases, monitoring public health trends, public health
research and education.
Transfusion medicine is the branch of medicine concerned with
transfusion of blood and blood components. Understandably, a lot of laboratory
testing is involved in this discipline.
Statewide Biobank is a vital new resource for medical research.
Providing access to the largest collections of human samples in Australia, it
helps researchers improve the way disease is detected, diagnosed and treated.
Note that NSW Health Pathology will never ask for money or donations via credit card over the phone. Please be aware of fundraising efforts claiming to be on behalf of our organisation.
