40 Under Forty

ASCP proudly celebrates the future leaders and innovators of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine!

For the second year, ASCP recognizes forty members under the age of 40 with achievements and qualities that are vital to the pathology and laboratory sciences fields. With even more applicants this year, it was a daunting task to select 40 individuals out of an incredibly talented pool of professionals.

Now, it is our great pleasure to showcase the 2015 ASCP 40 Under Forty honorees!
