The most important pathologist in the world
The question of the British magazine "The Pathologist" was: "Who are the most influential pathologists of the world"?
For two months, pathologists from all continents voted and the results have now been made public: Manuel Sobrinho Simões, professor of Medicine, University of Porto (FMUP), founder and president of Molecular Pathology and Immunology Institute of the University of Porto (IPATIMUP) - currently integrated into the Institute for Research and Innovation in Health (i3s) of the University of Porto - and pathologist at the Hospital of St. John, was voted the most influential pathologist in 2015.
One of the reasons given for the appointment of Sobrinho Simoes was, having contributed "more than anyone else, to the pathology of visibility in Europe."
He is also cited for his contribution to the clinical diagnosis of thyroid cancer - "Pathologists hospitals around the world follow their rules in their daily routines' - and the fact that support and train young pathologists from around the world.
Congratulations to Manuel Sobrinho Simões from Meet Me at Porto.
