Although Maura F. O’Neil, MD, served as Editorial Review Group Chair in Pathology and Surgical Pathology from 2011 until earlier this year when she stepped down, her relationship with Doody’s Review Service goes back a lot further. She began reviewing books for us in 2004 for the previous Chair, Ivan Damjanov, MD, PhD. As Chair, she received 298 books and oversaw reviews of 176 of them. Although she continued to review some books, she successfully recruited 48 reviewers to submit reviews.
Dr. O’Neil, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at University of Kansas Medical Center, is board certified in anatomic and clinical pathology by the American Board of Pathology. After getting her BS in biology from Washburn University in Topeka, she attended medical school at University of Kansas, where she also completed her residency in anatomic and clinical pathology and a cytopathology fellowship. Her clinical interests lie in surgical pathology and cytopathology.
