The Power List 2015

David Bruns

“I chose laboratory medicine because it provides great opportunities to do both research and clinical service,” says David. He’s currently a professor of pathology, director of clinical chemistry, associate director of molecular diagnostics, and founding co-director of the Fellowship in Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Virginia School of Medicine. His research centers on quality requirements and harmonization for medical tests, fields in which he’s authored over 170 peer-reviewed papers, given more than 130 invited talks, and won numerous awards. A past president of the Academy of Clinical Laboratory Physicians and Scientists and of the Association of Clinical Scientists, he has also served on the board of directors of the American Association for Clinical Chemistry and as chair of the ethics task force of the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry. He says, “Laboratory medicine provides satisfaction in proportion to personal effort and dedication, but each success reflects the input of many people.”
