  • Prof. Bernd Scheithauer

    Bernd Scheithauer is a consultant in pathologist in the Division of Anatomic Pathology, Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota. A world renowned neuropathologist, Dr Scheithauer completed his training in Neuropathology from the Stanford University under the guidance of one of the pioneers in this field Luci J Rubinstein.

    Dr Scheithauer joined Mayo College of Medicine in 1979 and has been one of the most respected members of the faculty of this reputed institution ever since.

    His skillful diagnostic abilities stem from a keen eye for detail and a thorough understanding of neurobiology. His vast experience in Neuropathology makes him a walking atlas of different morphologic patterns that one can see in Neuropathology. A morphologist at heart BWS has not shunned the advances in molecular Neuropathology, but has found a good balance between the two, using information gathered from molecular tests on occasion to complement his interpretation of a case.

    BWS is a passionate and superb teacher - the constant stream of visiting pathologist training under his guidance at Mayo are a testament to this fact. A prolific writer he has more than 600 articles, and more than 60 chapters on various topics related to Neuropathology to his credit. In addition he has edited and co-authored several textbooks in Neuropathology. His research interests are in the classification and pathobiology of brain, pituitary and peripheral nerve tumors. He visited the Department on January 2001.
