Pathology Welcomes Dr. Anthony Snow
Friday, August 29, 2014
Dr. Snow received his BS degree in Chemistry from Marquette University in Milwaukee, and his MD degree from the Creighton University in Omaha. He completed his residency in anatomic and clinical pathology at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina where, during his last year he served as Chief Resident. Following residency, he came to Iowa to complete the Molecular Genetic Pathology (MGP) fellowship. He has just completed a second fellowship in surgical pathology with an emphasis in GI pathology at Brown University.
Anthony is just beginning his career, but has had a range of experiences in molecular pathology across a spectrum of next generation technologies; having used microarray technology in medical school and having been instrumental in the development of a melanoma targeted next generation sequencing research panel last year here at the University of Iowa. During his MGP fellowship, he was a critical driver on a number of projects including multiple improvements to tissue processing for molecular oncology testing, a critical component in moving forward with personalized molecular testing. To date, he has published multiple peer reviewed manuscripts. Dr. Snow was highly regarded by the pathology residents during his MGP fellowship and it is clear that he has the potential to be a highly effective teacher. His mentors at Brown praise him for his work ethic and knowledge in surgical pathology fellowship.
Dr. Snow's recruitment is part of an ongoing effort to enhance the bridge between the dual clinical activities of molecular and surgical pathology in the Department of Pathology. Anthony's fellowship training in both has prepared him well for this position and he will bring unique understanding for moving the field forward. Equally important, there is a range of faculty in the College of Medicine who share interests with Dr. Snow indicating potential for collaboration.
When Anthony is not at work he spends the majority of his time with his wife Amanda and their children Madeline (8) and Lucca (5). He claims to have had other interests before medical school and having children, but cannot recall what they were. He welcomes suggestions from his new colleagues.
