    Dr. Vijay Vanguri


    I am an anatomic surgical pathologist with subspecialty expertise in renal pathology and a research background in cellular immunology. I am a dedicated teacher of medical students, residents, and fellows, with a focus on undergraduate medical student education, and serve the faculty and students of the School of Medicine as chair of the Educational Policy Committee. In addition to serving as the Director of Renal Pathology, I also contribute to the general surgical pathology and perinatal/obstetrical pathology services.
