Nikhil Sangle, M.D., FRCPath

Nikhil Sangle, M.D., FRCPath is a staff pathologist at London Health Sciences Centre and assistant professor, Department of Pathology, Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, Western University, Ontario, Canada. He has done pathology training at Cambridge University NHS Hospitals Foundation Trust in England, followed by AP+CP pathology residency at the University of Utah Health Sciences Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. His current practice and academic interests are GI pathology and hematopathology. He worked with Dr. Mary Bronner to study the magnitude and implications of over-diagnosis of high-grade dysplasia in Barrett's esophagus in 485 patients as part of a multi-institutional, international endoscopic ablation trial. The multiple diagnostic pitfalls assessed in the study should help raise pathologists' awareness of this problem and improve diagnostic accuracy. Dr. Sangle continues to pursue academic and translational research interests, and enjoys the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead for him as a junior academic pathologist.
