Weill Cornell Medicine-New York Presbyterian Hospital
I am the David D. Thompson Professor Professor of Pathology, Chairman of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine; and Pathologist-in-Chief in the New York-Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Campus. For many years, I have served as a Senior Staff Pathologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Chair of the Department of Oncologic Pathology at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Furthermore, I am a Professor Emeritus of Harvard Medical School.
My laboratory has been focused for several years on metabolic alterations in prostate tumorigenesis, with a specific interest in lipid metabolism and its regulation. Our approach is multidisciplinary, utilizing cell lines, orthotopic tumor xenograft, genetically engineered murine models and human tumors. We have also been at the forefront in the invention and application of novel molecular pathology techniques such as ex vivo organotypic cultures, multiplexed immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization, advances in image analysis and applying molecular techniques such as metabolic profiling to formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue.
