Biography

Dhanpat Jain, MD, is a pathologist specializing in gastrointestinal (GI) and liver diseases and cancers. Before he graduated high school, Dr. Jain knew he would pursue a career in medicine. Not until later in his medical training did he discover that he could apply his interests in visual art and pattern recognition to a field like pathology. “It is a natural fit for me,” Dr. Jain says.

On a daily basis, Dr. Jain examines tissue samples and biopsies from patients with suspected GI and liver diseases. He has extensive experience with samples that reflect motility, or movement, disorders of the GI tract. “These are uncommon disorders and not many people examine cases like this,” Dr. Jain says. For this reason, he regularly consults with physicians and other pathologists across the globe on challenging cases.

As a professor of pathology and of medicine (digestive diseases) at Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Jain researches liver tumors, inflammatory bowel disease, and cancers related to the liver and digestive tract.
