Biography

Dr Tambouret obtained her medical degree from the University of Nice, France and completed her residency in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology at the Hospital of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Before joining the staff of the Massachusetts General Hospital in 1997 she did an Anatomic Pathology fellowship at Englewood Hospital and then moved to a junior attending position at North Shore Hospital. She later joined the staff of St. Vincent Hospital in Manhattan, New York, where she had responsibilities in all areas of anatomic pathology including cytopathology. She holds subspecialty board certification in cytopathology. 

Dr. Tamboure's research interests include all aspects of cytopathology, especially gynecologic cytopathology and cytology of the urinary tract and kidney. She also has research interests in obstetrical and gynecologic surgical pathology, post graduate medical education and provision of pathology services to underserved countries.

Research

Dr. Tambouret's laboratory research involves the evaluation of the enhancement of cervical cytology screening by application of an immunocytochemical stain containing antibodies with specificity for topoisomerase 2a and for minichromosome maintenance 5 protein. She is also working on evaluation of the effect of senescence on cells in cervical cytology specimens by the use of beta-galactosidase reaction. Her research interests include:

  • Cytopathology: histologic, cytogenetic and molecular correlation
  • Gynecologic pathology: histologic-molecular correlation of gynecologic tumors
