Dr. Shannon McCall

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Shannon McCall has been promoted to Associate Professor of Pathology effective November 1, 2016.  She completed all of her medical training at Duke, serving as chief resident before completing a GI Pathology fellowship under the late Dr. Marcia Gottfried. Since joining the faculty as Assistant Professor in 2010, she has led the Anatomic Pathology Quality Assurance Program (2010-2015), helped develop the Biospecimen Repository and Processing Core (BRPC) laboratory with Dr. Michael Datto, and now leads the BRPC (2013-present). Dr. McCall has served as a team member on many translational science investigations including The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) where she serves as Expert Pathology Reviewer for the Gastric, Esophageal and Pan-GI Working Groups.  She is a thought leader in biobanking science with national and international speaking engagements and an appointment to the Biorepository Accreditation Program Committee of the College of American Pathologists.  Her scientific interest is in the plasticity of putative stem cell populations within esophageal submucosal glands.  She continues to perform diagnostic services in the areas of gastrointestinal, hepatic, and intraoperative pathology.  Her ongoing commitment to resident education was recognized in her receipt of the 2015 Bernard F. Fetter Teaching Award.  Please join me in congratulating Dr. McCall on her promotion.
