Biography

Dr. Frederic Askin is a professor of pathology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His area of clinical expertise includes pulmonary disease, pediatric neoplasia, pediatric lung disease, pathology and lung cancer.

A recognized authority in pediatric and adult lung pathology with more than 25 years of experience in the field, Dr. Askin serves as the director of surgical pathology and as chief of pathology at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

Dr. Askin earned his M.D. from the University of Virginia School of Medicine. He completed residencies at the Great Lakes Naval Hospital, the Johns Hopkins Hospital, and Washington University School of Medicine. He performed a fellowship in pathology at Washington University School of Medicine and a fellowship in environmental pathology at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine.

His research interests are adult and pediatric lung disease and the study of pediatric neoplasms. Dr. Askin serves on the editorial board of several journals, including The American Journal of Surgical Pathology. He has authored numerous articles on pulmonary disease, contributed to a number of textbooks on the subject, and co-authored two editions of The Surgical Pathology of Non-Neoplastic Lung Diseases.

    Research Summary

    Dr. Askin's research efforts are clinicopathologic studies of neoplasms and other disease processes seen by the surgical pathologist. Electron microscopy, immunocytochemistry, flow cytometry and molecular biologic techniques are often used in these studies, but light microscopy and the clinical history remain important. Radiologic-pathologic correlation is also a valuable area of study.

    His particular fields of interest are adult and pediatric lung disease and the study of pediatric neoplasms. He and his team also see material from a wide spectrum of non-neoplastic interstitial lung diseases. Lung carcinomas collected in their SPORE study are used in molecular oncologic and clinico-pathologic studies.
