Who We Are

Mission and Vision

Our mission is to improve people’s health by:

  • Developing tomorrow’s pathology leaders through awards for advanced training, research, and education.
  • Mobilizing pathologists to expand health equity in medically underserved communities within the US and globally.

Our vision is to support all pathologists to be leaders in their communities and at the forefront of patient-centered care.

For over 50 years, the CAP Foundation has granted millions of dollars to support pathology education, research, training, and travel grants, with the purpose to:

  • Enhance the role of the pathologist in the provision of medical care.
  • Advance pathology through the education of the medical community.
  • Encourage the clinical application of research developments.
