About Stuti Shroff, MBBS, PhD

Dr. Shroff received her medical degree of MBBS (Bachelors in Medicine, Bachelors in Surgery) from the University of Mumbai, India. She then decided to pursue a PhD in Biologic Sciences with an emphasis on Molecular Biology, and Cell and Developmental Biology at the University of Illinois, Chicago.  Her graduate school research was focused on understanding the role of several key molecules in the Wnt and TGFβ signaling pathways during organ development.  Thereafter, she decided to pursue a career in pathology, and completed her residency training in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology at the State University of New York at Buffalo.  She then completed fellowships in Selective Surgical Pathology and Gastrointestinal and Hepatic Pathology at the University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.  In 2013, Dr. Shroff joined the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, as an Assistant Professor of Pathology.  In 2018, she joined the Anatomic Pathology Service at Massachusetts General Hospital, and was appointed as an Assistant Professor of Pathology at the Harvard Medical School.  

Dr. Shroff enjoys contributing to trainee education and has also participated in Gastrointestinal pathology peer education at diverse venues including the ASCP and USCAP annual meetings.  Her primary clinical interests are gastrointestinal and hepatic diseases. Her research interests are focused on preneoplastic and neoplastic lesions of the gastrointestinal tract and pancreaticobiliary tree with an emphasis on molecular and translational studies.
