    PATHOLOGY (DR ZAATARI) BOOK-1.pngGoing through the files and archives of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine was an inspiration to explore its history. This journey over the past 150 years showed how the Department evolved and transformed during this period of glorious record of the American University of Beirut (AUB) in the Middle East. Learning about the founding faculty of the Syrian Protestant College and those that followed at AUB, as the College came to be known later, revealed the solid framework under which this department has been founded and demonstrated the high ethical values and the strong commitment by them to the University's mission in education, clinical service and research and to the communities they served. This brief history also outlines the active interplay of pathology and laboratory medicine with other medical disciplines, a unique feature of this medical specialty. The timing of publishing this book could not have been better as the University observes its 150th anniversary. ​
