The Pathfinder of Pathology

Well known for his extensive work in soft tissue pathology, Christopher D.M. Fletcher has spent over 35 years accumulating knowledge in the laboratory, the classroom, and even at the writer’s desk of a prominent histopathology textbook. Here, he shares his wisdom in a peer-to-peer interview with pathologist Pallavi A. Patil.

Christopher Fletcher is Professor of Pathology at Harvard Medical School, Senior Pathologist and Vice Chair of Anatomic Pathology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Chief of Onco-Pathology at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. With an extensive history of awards and publications, his long-time focus is on the pathologic diagnosis and classification of soft tissue tumors.

His 35-year-long career has yielded wisdom in many facets of pathology, and he is highly regarded as a mentor by those who have had the privilege of learning from him. Now, Pallavi A. Patil – a fellow in gastrointestinal and liver pathology at Yale University – interviews Fletcher to spread his wisdom to those pathologists and laboratory medicine professionals who have not yet had the opportunity to meet him.
