The magazine listed the most influential laboratory medicine professionals in its inaugural “Top 100 Power List” issue. Dr. Bui is included because of her roles at Moffitt, many scientific publications and awards, contributions in digital pathology, and the editor of the forthcoming book, Healing Art of Pathology, which advocates the importance of pathology and laboratory professionals in patient care.
“I feel passionate about contributing to cancer diagnosis and education, creating new knowledge through research, and advancing our profession to ultimately benefit patient care in a significant way,” Bui tells the magazine. As to how it feels to be recognized nationally and internationally by the magazine, Dr. Bui says “It is a privilege and honor to be a pathologist and working in a wonderful institution such as Moffitt Cancer Center with many talented and dedicated pathologists and health care leaders. I am also gratefully to College of American Pathologists and other pathologist associations which provided unique opportunities for me to contribute to the advancement of our profession.”
According to The Pathologist editor Fedra Pavlou, the power list celebrates the exceptional achievements of those who have really had an impact on the field while highlighting truly groundbreaking work of laboratory medicine and its intrinsic role in patient care and the molecular revolution.
“In a nutshell, we wanted to give the profession the boost in publicity it so desperately needs and absolutely deserves,” Pavlou writes in the issue, adding that those included were nominated by readers and selected by an independent judging panel of eminent laboratory professionals. “What particularly struck me during the process was the high number of US-based nominees, which resulted in Americans accounting for almost 50% of the 2015 Power List”.
The Pathologist is published by Texere Publishing Limited in the United Kingdom.
