About Dr. Wendong Yu
I am a Pathologist with special interests in Bone and Soft Tissue Pathology, and Cytopathology. I joined MDACC in 2020. I am also the Medical Director of Anatomic Pathology at Houston Area Locations (HALs), and Executive Advisor for Cytotechnology program in the School of Health Professions. My research work has involved the clinical utility of Mass Spectrometry imaging, morphologic, immunohistochemical, and molecular studies of various bone and soft tissue tumors, and HPV in head and neck tumors.
