Four New Faculty Join the Department

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine is pleased to welcome four new faculty, starting July 1, 2016: Derrick Chen, Rong Hu, Stephanie McGregor and Subhojit Roy.

Derrick Chen, MDDerrick Chen, MD, completed his undergraduate degree in Psychology and Biology, and a MS degree in Applied Cognition and Neuroscience at the University of Texas at Dallas as a Eugene McDermott Scholar. He obtained his medical degree at the UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas and completed residency training in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology at the Cleveland Clinic. Most recently, he has been a Clinical Microbiology Fellow at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Dr. Chen joins our Department as Medical Director of Microbiology.

Rong Hu, MD, PhDRong Hu, MD, PhD, is a former UW Pathology resident, and we welcome her back to the Surgical Pathology Service. Dr. Hu completed medical school at the Inner Mongolia Medical College in China and moved to the US to pursue PhD training in Microbiology at SUNY Buffalo, NY. Then, after completing postdoctoral training on prostate cancer research in the Department of Urology at Johns Hopkins University, she became a Pathology resident at UW and went on to a Surgical Pathology fellowship focusing on Genitourinary Pathology and Head/Neck Pathology at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Hu joins our GU/ENT/Endo pathology subspecialty service.

Stephanie McGregor, MD, PhDStephanie McGregor, MD, PhD, completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and entered a joint MD/PhD program at the University of Chicago. She went on to complete an Anatomic Pathology Residency at the University of Chicago Hospitals and stayed on as a Breast and Gynecologic Pathology Fellow last year. Dr. McGregor is a member of our Breast/Gynecologic Pathology subspecialty service.

Subhojit Roy, MD, PhDSubhojit Roy, MD, PhD, received his MD from the R.G. Kar Medical College in Kolkata, India and his PhD in Anatomy and Cell Biology at Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA. He then completed both residency training in Anatomic Pathology and a fellowship in Neuropathology at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship at the Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases Research at the University of Pennsylvania. Since then, Dr. Roy has been a faculty in the Departments of Pathology and Neurosciences at the University of California at San Diego, CA. Dr. Roy joins our Department as a Professor on the tenure track, with an affiliate appointment in Neurosciences. Dr. Roy's research program is broadly centered around intracellular trafficking of macromolecules in neurons; a phenomenon vital to neuronal physiology, and one that often goes awry in neurodegenerative diseases. His roles include leading the Wisconsin Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC) Neuropathology Core, and also participating in the Neuropathology service.
