Overview

Dr. Pei-Ling Chen is an Assistant Member in the Moffitt Cancer Center Department of Anatomic Pathology. Dr. Chen received her MD from The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island and her PhD from Stanford University, Department of Neurobiology/Program in Neurosciences. She completed a residency in anatomic pathology at Washington University in the Department of Pathology and Immunology/Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri and a clinical fellowship in surgical pathology at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in the Department of Pathology and Department of Genomic Medicine in Houston, Texas. Dr. Chen also completed a T32 postdoctoral research fellowship and a clinical fellowship in dermatopathology at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Her practice will be primarily in clinical dermatopathology.
