Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center has added a new leader to its Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine with the promotion of Paul Bogner, MD, to Director of Surgical Pathology. In the Surgical Pathology Division, Dr. Bogner will now oversee fourteen sub-specialty pathologists who handle more than 25,000 cases per year. Armed with sub-specialized training and experience, the team of pathologists are able to carefully distinguish between the many sub-types of cancers, a behind-the-scenes service that is essential to determining a treatment plan that will lead to the best possible outcome. Sought after for his expertise as a diagnostic consultant throughout Western New York, Dr. Bogner will expand outreach to community clients in various medical specialties.

Dr. Bogner first joined the department in 2005 as an Assistant Professor of Oncology and became an Associate Professor in 2013. His dedication and commitment to cancer research and mentorship led to a position as Program Director of Roswell Park’s oncologic surgical pathology fellowship just two years later. Fellows have credited him with innovations such as social media-based education and a subspecialty focus during the second half of the fellowship year.

“This position is a critical one,” said Charles LeVea, MD, PhD, Chair of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. “Dr. Bogner will work closely with clinicians to formulate optimal treatment plans for our patients. We’re excited to see him flourish in his new role.”

Dr. Bogner is a graduate of the University at Buffalo Jacobs School of Medicine and completed fellowships in oncologic surgical pathology with Roswell Park and dermatopathology with the University of Michigan Health System.
