Anne M. Mills, M.D.

Assistant Professor of Pathology


Med School: University of Virginia School of Medicine, 2004-2008
Residency:  Stanford School of Medicine, Anatomic and Clinical Pathology, 2008-2012
Fellowships: University of Virginia Department of Pathology, Cytopathology, 2013-2014

Clinical Area:

General surgical pathology with specialization in gynecological pathology and cytopathology.


My research interests center around the use of molecular and immunohistochemical techniques to improve cancer diagnosis and prognostication with specific interest in uterine neoplasia, gyneologic heritable cancer syndromes, and human papilloma virus-related malignancies.
