Timothy H. McCalmont, MD

Research and Clinical Interests

My interest is the advancement of diagnostic dermatopathology. Our unit is particularly active as a bridge between conventional microscopy and molecular methods. In the realm of cutaneous lymphoma, we provide comprehensive consultation and classification using both immunophenotyping and genotyping as diagnostic supplements. We also provide consultative diagnoses for a large volume of melanocytic neoplasms and are active in the utilization of comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) and fluorescence in-situ hybridization (FISH). I also serve as the Editor of the Journal of Cutaneous Pathology.
