Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences

Medical Laboratory Scientists (MLS), sometimes referred to as medical technologists (MT) or medical laboratory technicians (MLT), are vital members of the healthcare team who play a central role in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of disease. Laboratory Scientists appreciate investigative work and problem solving, and are counted on to provide physicians with information critical to the successful diagnosis and treatment of patients. Medical laboratory scientists and technicians are employed by hospitals, clinics, research facilities, universities and in lab-related commercial industry.




Our on-campus MLS students are involved in a wide variety of undergraduate research projects, ranging from using molecular biology to identify virulence factors in bacteria to validating clinical instruments that detect antibodies in blood samples.
