Dr. Jon S. Morrow

Chair – Pathology at Yale School of Medicine

 

An internationally recognized physician-scientist, Dr. Morrow has led Pathology for nearly 30 years. His research has pioneered studies on the structure, function and genetics of complex cell membrane scaffolds. These studies were among the first to reveal the molecular basis of several hereditary disorders of blood cells, diseases most commonly afflicting young children, as well as the molecular basis of movement disorders such as hereditary ataxia. This work is reported in over 200 original research publications and reviews. Dr. Morrow personally co-authored the development of the first comprehensive anatomic pathology information system (CoPath®), now the most widely used anatomic lab information system across the Country.
