David Hudnall, MD

S. David Hudnall, MD is Precipio's Medical Director. He is also Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, and Director of Hematopathology at Yale University School of Medicine. Dr. Hudnall attended medical school at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, SC (1974-78). Following his medical training, Dr. Hudnall completed his residency in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology at the Yale-New Haven Hospital, Yale University School of Medicine (1978-82). This training was followed by a Research Fellowship in Pathology (1982-84) at the Brigham and Women's Hospital, at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Hudnall held academic positions in Pathology at UCLA, Baylor, and the University of Texas Medical Branch before returning to New Haven in 2009 to serve as Professor and Director of Hematopathology. Dr. Hudnall is board-certified in Anatomic Pathology, Clinical Pathology, and Hematology (Pathology). He has authored more than 130 peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, and abstracts on a wide variety of topics in hematopathology, and is the recipient of numerous teaching awards.
