Loyola pathologist honored for professional excellence

MAYWOOD, Ill. – Dermatopathologist Jodi J. Speiser, MD, assistant professor of Pathology at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine, has been named to the American Society for Clinical Pathology’s (ASCP) “40 Under 40” for her achievements in the medical laboratory field.

ASCP’s inaugural 40 Under 40 program recognizes 40 pathologists, pathology residents and laboratory professionals under age 40 who have made significant contributions to the profession and stand out as the future of laboratory leadership. High achievers being recognized by ASCP include the founder of a not-for-profit that connects lab professionals with volunteer opportunities around the world; a specialist in forensic pathology; and a researcher focused on unearthing the effects of intoxication on infection.

The program reflects the extensive and diverse variety of interests, areas of specialty and improvements in health care that lab professionals are involved in, ranging from cancer therapy and the genesis of disease, to clinical trial design, genomics and personalized medicine.

Speiser and fellow 40 honorees each will have the opportunity to share their knowledge about topics pertinent to pathology and laboratory medicine with a personal blog on ASCP’s ONELab website. Later this summer ASCP will select the top five bloggers, who will each receive free registration to attend ASCP 2014 Annual Meeting, along with a $1,000 stipend toward airfare and lodging. In addition, the winners will receive free enrollment in Lab Management University, a collaborative initiative of ASCP and the American Pathology Foundation.
