Department of Pathology

HEMATOPATHOLOGY

The Hematopathology division consists of Dr. Arwa Shana’ah (director), Dr. Gerard Lozanski, Dr. Daniel Jones, Dr. Weiqiang Zhao, Dr. Aharon Freud, Dr. Jessica Hemminger, Dr. Nicholas Nowacki and Dr. Ling Guo.

In addition to covering a very busy service that includes the review of over bone marrow specimens, lymph nodes/lymphoid tissues (we had a greater than 4200 hematopathology specimens last year), peripheral blood smears, body fluids, coagulation workups and flow cytometric analysis interpretations, the faculty members actively participate in research projects and collaborations with the Departments of Hematology/Oncology and Bioinformatics among others as well as being involved in various cooperative research groups including the Pathology branch of the Alliance-Leukemia Cadre and Cancer Genome Atlas. These research efforts have resulted in many publications and grant awards. We also participate in weekly multidisciplinary conferences including Lymphoma Conference and Lymphoma Research Conference and are actively involved in the teaching of residents, fellows, medical students and visitors from other institutions. We offer a one-year Hematopathology Fellowship program that combines intensive experience in benign and neoplastic hematopathology with exposure to molecular pathology and cytogenetics to form a well-rounded base for academic or community-based practice.
