Histopathology Department

About us

 

The Histopathology Department at Beaumont Hospital is comprised of the following subsections:

  • Routine Histopathology
  • Immunohistochemistry and access to Molecular Diagnostics
  • Non-Gynaecological Cytology
  • Neuropathology
  • Electron Microscopy
  • Renal Pathology
  • Autopsy Service

As well as providing a service to the hospital and local GP catchment area, it provides a histopathology service for the national referral centres in neurosciences and renal transplantation. As a histopathology laboratory in a designated cancer centre, the laboratory provides diagnostic support for a range of tertiary referrals such as breast cancer.

The department participates in the North Dublin rotation for the training of histopathology NCHDs and is linked to undergraduate teaching of medicine in the RCSI.

Extensive research is carried out within the department. It also holds strong research links with several institutions in Ireland including RCSI, St James’s Hospital, Trinity College, UCD and DCU. In collaboration with the RCSI, two bio-banks collect tissue: One containing somatic neoplasms and the other of which is a brain bank.

The consultant staff is involved in a range of national and international academic working groups and other medical organisations.
