Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) Program
Skin Diseases Research Center, Yale
My major interests are in diagnostic and experimental lung pathology.
I entered the MD-PhD program at Yale School of Medicine in 1979. My PhD was with Donal Murphy on a novel antigenic structure within the murine MHC. Upon graduation I trained in Anatomic Pathology under the supervision of Dr. Juan Rosai and simultaneously completed a post-doctoral fellowship with Richard Flavell, Chair of the section of Immunobiology, with a focus on T cell tolerance.
For many years, I worked on various murine models of inflammatory lung disease, ran a morphology core and a laboratory at West Haven VA. I now still consult on various experimental models of lung disease (both neoplastic and non-neoplastic) and work with collaborators using human tissues.
I am heavily involved in medical school curriculum development as Director of Medical Studies for Pathology, am on the curriculum committee and am Co-Director of one of the new master courses for the new (starting 2015) pre-clinical curriculum for YSM.
I have been Director of Anatomic Pathology at West Haven VA since 1994. I have been lead thoracic pathologist at Yale since 2004.
