May 2019 Issue of The Pathologist

In this month’s issue, we tackle some of the biggest challenges that women face throughout a career in pathology and lab medicine. We assemble an expert panel of women who have forged highly successful careers to address your questions on the gender-specific issues that matter most. In addition, take an inside look at the CNS as we investigate cerebrospinal fluid cytokine profiling, discover how new technology can lift the pressure on healthcare services during winter, and read about the invaluable contributions that pathologists’ assistants make in the lab. We also sit down with Stephen Quake, Lee Otterson Professor of Bioengineering and Professor of Applied Physics at Stanford University and co-President of the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub, Stanford, USA.
