- Mark and Jane Gibson Distinguished Professorship in Cancer Research
Wenxin Zheng, M.D., Professor of Pathology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, American board certified pathologist, graduated from Shanghai Medical College Fudan University and trained at Columbia University, Cornell University, and Brown University Medical Centers in anatomic pathology and gynecologic pathology, Selected by US News and World Report in 2013 as one of America's top pathologists, Dr. Zheng is an internationally recognized gynecologic pathologist with outstanding expertise in every aspect of gynecologic pathology. Dr. Zheng’s main research contributions include endometrial serous carcinogenesis and precancerous lesion endometrial glandular dysplasia, cell origin of low-grade ovarian serous carcinoma, hormonal etiology of ovarian epithelial cancers, and tubal contribution of ovarian endometriosis and its associated ovarian cancers.
