A Turkish scientist has been listed among the 100 most “inspirational and influential professionals in laboratory medicine” by The Pathalogist magazine published in the United Kingdom.
Pembe Oltulu, who is a co-author of the article “Effective use of Twitter and Facebook in pathology practice,” has been a pathology professor at Necmettin Erbakan University in Turkey’s Central Anatolian province of Konya.
“Pembe was nominated by her peers for being a role model for the pathology community, sharing insightful educational content online and welcoming newcomers to the field,” The Pathologist said in its latest issue.
“Her interests revolve around dermatopathology, hematopathology, and education and training through social media,” it added.
Oltulu told state-run Anadolu Agency that said she and her friends across the world have been trying to contribute to pathology education over the last five years through social media.
“I joined the social media platforms in my field and saw that internationally renowned professors were sharing their experiences and information online,” she said.
I immediately started to share my knowledge. Many scientists in Turkey are following such studies,” Oltulu added.
Fatima Carneiro, professor of anatomic pathology at the Medical Faculty of Porto, head of the department of anatomic pathology at Hospital Sao Joao, and senior investigator at the Institute of Molecular Pathology and Immunology at the University of Porto, topped “The Power List 2018” for her contributions to multiple discoveries in the field of gastric cancer.
Elizabeth Montgomery, professor of pathology, oncology, and orthopedic surgery at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, ranked second in the list for her expertise in the fields of anatomic pathology, clinical pathology, and cytopathology.
Jo Martin, president of the Royal College of Pathologists, professor of pathology at Queen Mary University of London, and director of Academic Health Sciences, ranked third. Martin is a histopathologist who specializes in neuromuscular disease of the gut and in renal pathology.
