About Me

University College London Hospitals

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.

Before joining Memorial Sloan Kettering, I was a professor of pathology at the Mayo Clinic, in Rochester, Minnesota, where I also served as an attending consultant pathologist, medical director of immunostains and the clinical proteomics laboratory, and vice chair of the Division of Anatomic Pathology. Before that, I spent fours years as an attending pathologist and professor of hematopathology at University College London. I was actively involved in the education and training of residents and fellows at UCL, and developed a new curriculum and accompanying textbook in pathology for undergraduate medical students.
