Research/Clinical Interest
Title
Description
Dr. Connerís primary interest and activity is in diagnostic OB-GYN surgical pathology. He is actively engaged in the performance of diagnostic surgical pathology on the OB-GYN surgical pathology service. In addition to this activity, he also provides diagnostic pathology service for the GYN Tumor Board and the Colposcopy Clinic at UAB. In addition to clinical service work, Dr. Conner is also heavily involved in teaching activity both within the Pathology Department and the School of Medicine. Teaching activities with the Pathology Department include the training of pathology residents as they rotate on the OB-GYN surgical pathology service. Dr. Conner serves as Coursemaster for the Reproductive Pathology section of the Correlative Pathology Course at the School of Medicine. Dr. Connerís research interests are generally associated with providing surgical pathology support to clinical studies.
