Samuel G. Katz, MD, is a pathologist who specializes in diagnosing diseases and cancers of the blood, including lymphoma and leukemia. During medical school, Dr. Katz was strongly drawn to scientific research, especially the study of disease origin. He is driven by a need “to understand what’s happening within cells,” he says.

Dr. Katz appreciates the opportunity to discuss patient samples with colleagues in order to determine—with the most accuracy possible—how a patient’s therapy might move forward. “There’s an art to pathology,” he says.

At Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Katz is an assistant professor of pathology and studies the basic mechanisms of cell death. 

Clinical Trials

New treatments for many conditions are tested in clinical trials, which ultimately bring lifesaving new drugs and devices to the patients who need them most. By participating in a clinical trial, you may get access to the most advanced treatments for your condition, and help determine their benefits for future patients.
