Arie Perry is a Professor at the University of California in San Francisco, where he serves as the Director of the Neuropathology Division and the Neuropathology Fellowship program. He received his MD and residency training at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, followed by fellowships in surgical pathology, neuropathology, and molecular cytogenetics research at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. His interests have focused mostly on classification, grading, and molecular characterization of both adult and pediatric brain tumors. He has authored over 430 publications and participated as a senior advisor/editor for the WHO 2016 brain tumor classification scheme. He has also served as a chief editor for Brain Pathology (official journal for the International Society of Neuropathology), the 2010 Practical Surgical Neuropathology textbook (second edition now in press), and the 2015 9th edition of Greenfield’s Neuropathology. USCAP has been his professional home since 1992, where he has previously enjoyed many roles, including abstract reviewer, session moderator, companion society speaker, evening session panelist and moderator, short course faculty, molecular special course faculty, and publications committee member.
Dr. Perry also maintains an active surgical neuropathology consult service and is a frequently invited lecturer. Furthermore, he particularly adores the creative side of Pathology, making use of his longstanding passions for both music and teaching. In this respect, he has been featured in several media stories for using "neuropathology songs" in education, including a CD recording of 16 medical ballads and a YouTube male a cappella rendition of ‘Brain Tumor Rhapsody’ set to Bohemian Rhapsody.
