In Memoriam - Dr. David Grignon



Our condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Dr. David J. Grignon, who passed away on Tuesday, January 28, 2020 after a short battle with pancreatic cancer.

Dr. Grignon was a resident in our Anatomical Pathology program from 1981-1986. He went on to become one of "a few giants in urological pathology in the late 20th and early 21st century" according to Theodorus Van der Kwast, President of the International Society of Urological Pathology. Since 2007, Dr. Grignon was Centennial Professor of Pathology at Indiana University and Vice Chair for Clinical Programs and was a founding member of the International Society of Urological Pathology. During his exemplary career in Urogenital Pathology, Dr. Grignon contributed more than 350 paper publications, numerous book chapters, many invited lectures and courses, editorial board service, and service to all the major pathology organizations, including a recent term as the treasurer of the USCAP. 

A memorial donation has been made on behalf of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine.
