Profile Headshot


Diane Chen is a surgical pathologist board-certified by the American Board of Pathology. Originally from Hauula, a rural town in Hawaii, she matriculated into the University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine where she was inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society.

Dr. Chen then moved to New York City to complete a residency training in anatomic and clinical pathology at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. During this time, she was selected to become Chief Resident in her second year of training where she further developed a keen interest in medical student and resident education. Inspired by her mentors and experiences, she remained at CUIMC to complete a joint surgical pathology and gastrointestinal/hepatic pathology fellowship.

Dr. Chen is a member of several professional societies, including the College of American Pathologists, United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology, and Association for Molecular Pathology. Her research interests include clarifying the differential histology and staining patterns of pediatric liver tumors, elucidating the differential network analysis of colon and rectal adenocarcinomas, determining the utility of molecular testing in clinical outcomes of thyroid nodules, and examining the histology of certain subtypes of renal cell carcinoma. Her work has been published in peer-reviewed journals and presented at national and international conferences.
