Robert J. Kurman, MD and PhD, is the Director of the Division of Gynecological Pathology at Johns Hopkins University where his focus has been aimed at elucidating the pathogenesis of a variety of neoplasms in the female genital tract, particularly in the morphologic and genetic alterations associated with the early events in carcinogenesis. He has written dozens of articles and has authored, co-authored, edited or co-edited many books including Molecular Pathology of Gynecologic Cancer (2007), Diagnosis of Endometrial Biopsies and Curettings (2005), Diagnosis of Endometrial Biopsies and Curettings: A Practical Approach (2004), Histological Typing of Female Genital Tract Tumours (International Histological Classification of Tumours) (1994), The Bethesda System for Reporting Cervical/Vaginal Cytologic Diagnoses (1994), and Atlas of Gynecologic Pathology (1987).
