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.

CAP Foundation History

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.

Our Impact

The fall 2020 newsletter tells of how the CAP Foundation has adapted to support and continue the See, Test & Treat program in pandemic-appropriate ways. It spotlights the new Global Pathology Fund initiative while also paying tribute to the life of Dr. Gene N. Herbek, who passed away in June. The founder of See, Test & Treat, Dr. Herbek inspired other pathologists to get involved in the program. Read about their experiences.
