Danielle Elliott Range, MD has been promoted the rank of Associate Professor of Pathology

We are very pleased to announce that Danielle Elliott Range, MD has been promoted the rank of Associate Professor of Pathology.

Dr. Range completed her AP/CP residency and head and neck fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital. She moved on to MD Anderson Cancer Center to complete a cytopathology fellowship. After training, she joined the MD Anderson staff as the only faculty member signing out head and neck and cytopathology. Later, she spent several years in private practice where she served in leadership positions as director of anatomic pathology and cytopathology. She returned to academia in 2015, when she joined the Duke faculty.

Dr. Range’s research spans 15 years of work in head and neck and thyroid neoplasia. She has written over 25 peer-reviewed manuscripts and book chapters, and is co-editor of the textbook Practical Head and Neck Pathology: Frequently Asked Questions. Dr. Range’s current work focuses on the use of artificial intelligence and thyroid disease. She and her collaborators have used a novel approach to develop a machine learning algorithm which aids in the diagnosis and classification of thyroid nodules. They are working on leveraging their research and telepathology to impact the way thyroid disease is diagnosed in remote corners of the world.

Since joining Duke, Dr. Range has served as section chief for ENT/Endocrine Pathology and chair of the Clinical Competency Committee for the cytopathology fellowship. She currently serves as Associate Medical Director for the Cytopathology Division and the Pathology Department’s At-Large Member on the Private Diagnostic Clinic Board of Managers. She is an active member of the American Society of Cytopathology and has served on its Research and Current Concepts Committee for the past 4 years. These have all given her the opportunity to pursue her interests in laboratory operations, teaching, and in the disciplines of cytopathology and ENT pathology.

Please join me in congratulating Dr. Range for her promotion.
