The Grover M. Hutchins, M.D. Memorial Fund

Research Support for Trainees

The friends and family of Grover Hutchins joined together to establish The Grover M. Hutchins, M.D. Memorial Fund. Grover spent 56 years at Johns Hopkins University. He first came to Hopkins in 1949 as an undergraduate in engineering. After serving in the United States Army Medical Corps from 1952-1954, Grover returned to Johns Hopkins where he completed his bachelor's degree and, in 1957, received his medical degree from the School of Medicine. He completed both his internship and residency in the Department of Pathology. Following his residency, Grover joined the Pathology faculty where he went on to become a full Professor and served in a leadership role as Director of Autopsy Pathology from 1976 to 1998. He was a prolific clinico-pathologic researcher, with more than 500 papers published in peer-reviewed journals, as well as hundreds of academic presentations, more than 50 book chapters, and two books. Grover was a tireless champion of the autopsy as a quality assurance, educational, and research tool. Among over 50,000 autopsies performed at the Johns Hopkins Hospital since 1889, he personally examined reports and slides from over one quarter of the cases as part of his research and educational work.

Above all, Grover was an acclaimed educator and medical school teacher until his unexpected death in 2010. Many of the leading academic pathologists today were nurtured by collaborations with him. Grover left behind a magnificent legacy of academic achievement and mentorship. The Grover M. Hutchins, M.D. Memorial Fund honors his legacy by providing research support for trainees and junior faculty in the areas of autopsy, cardiac or pediatric pathology in the Department of Pathology.
