Dr. Fromm's Story


Dr. Fromm is a hematopathologist. He chose to go into medicine for two reasons. "I was always interested in the biologic sciences and so it was only natural that I would become a physician." And his father is a biochemist so he was exposed to biologic sciences at a young age.

"I was interested in hematopathology because my sister had a friend who had leukemia as a child and this sparked an interest in the subject of hematology/oncology," Fromm says. "I like pathology. It is a very visual field, is always advancing, and allows one to bring multiple modalities to bear on a diagnostic question."

Dr. From's research currently involves studies of the pathobiology of and new diagnostic methods for lymphoma. Roughly five years ago, his research showed that the neoplastic cells of Hodgkin's lymphoma can be identified by flow cytometry allowing this neoplasm to be diagnosed by this technique. This work also allows physicians to rapidly purify these cells so they can be studied in detail.

When he isn't working, Dr. Fromm enjoys spending time with his two children. "Work keeps me busy and they pretty much takes up the other remaining time."
