Elizabeth A. Montgomery, M.D.
Primary Appointment in Pathology
My research efforts are clinicopathologic studies of well-characterized and novel entities encountered in surgical pathology using both conventional light microscopy and newer techniques. Specific interests include several topics in gastrointestinal pathology, especially Barrett esophagus. I look forward to additional clinicopathological work using newer technology. I also have a strong interest in soft tissue pathology and recent studies have been of telomeres in translocation-associated sarcomas compared to chromosome unstable types.
