Laura Santambrogio, MD, PhD, publishes book on Lymphatic System.

Monday, June 10, 2013

Dr. Laura Santambrogio has published a comprehensive book of the lymphatic system and its immunological role. Immunology of the Lymphatic System (Springer, May 2013) begins with an overview of the lymphatic capillaries, their origin and development. It addresses lymph circulation, in general, with a special emphasis on lymph circulation in parenchymal organs. The next section focuses on lymph nodes, subcortical circulation and the conduit system. It discusses organs with no lymphatic system, such as the brain. Finally, it covers lymph composition and cells in the lymph. While primarily basic research, the volume touches upon elements of the clinical, as well, broadening its scope and appeal. It is available to purchase here.

Unique opportunities abound in Clinical and Experimental Pathology at the Montefiore Medical Center and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Our mission is to deliver the highest quality of medical care through the use of state-of-the-art diagnostic procedures and the translation of new knowledge into the practice of Pathology.

The Department of Pathology is a leader in medical, resident and graduate education. The department is home to approximately 20 residents, 8 clinical fellows, 15 postdoctoral scholars, and 15 graduate students from various Ph.D. programs.  Our faculty members receive substantial federal funding to conduct basic, translational, and clinical research in the mechanisms of disease. Our major programs include: Genomics and Cancer Biology, Immunopathology, Infectious Disease and Neuropathology.

Montefiore is an integrated medical system and was the best performing Pioneer ACO in 2012. Pathology clinical services are provided using a service line model. We performed over 11 million tests in 2013, providing services to diverse settings throughout the Bronx and lower Westchester County, including acute care academic medical centers, large medical groups, schools, shelters, nursing homes, hospices, emergency departments and solo practitioners.
