I am a board-certified pathologist and an internationally recognized leader in hematopathology, the branch of pathology concerned with diseases of the blood and of hematopoietic and lymphoid tissue. My current research interests include lymphoma, plasma cell disorders, and diagnostic techniques for hematopathology such as cytogenetic analysis, genomics, and proteomics. My previous work has contributed much to the understanding of the histogenesis of lymphomas, MALT lymphomas, and T cell lymphomas in particular.
Hematopathology is a new service established jointly under the Departments of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, encompassing all diagnostic and academic activities of hematopathology in both departments. As service chief, I am responsible for orchestrating the integration of diagnostic results across multiple laboratories to enhance patient care and for helping to foster increased primary and collaborative research related to hematologic malignancies treated at Memorial Sloan-Kettering.
