Dr. Beatrice Knudsen joined the Department of Pathology in January 2020 as a Professor in the Division of Anatomic Pathology. Dr. Knudsen came to the University of Utah from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she held the rank of Professor in the disciplines of biomedical sciences and pathology & laboratory medicine.
Dr. Knudsen’s area of expertise is in digital and computational pathology. Although she spent the majority of her career as an academic, translational, laboratory scientist, she switched to the rapidly-moving field of computational science in 2013. Dr. Knudsen’s vision is to: empower pathologists to be more efficient and more effective by using algorithmic solutions; assist pathologists to take a leading role in the research community by generating quantitative data from tissue morphology; and form teams of computer scientists, data analysts and pathologists to develop new pathology image analysis software. As is evident in her vision statement, Dr. Knudsen is an advocate for team science.
Outside of work, Dr. Knudsen enjoys skiing, cooking and biking, and she has a new puppy and senior dog that also keep her busy. Her partner has a woodworking shop; she’s enjoying decorating her new home and would love to learn to make furniture. She looks forward to visiting their three adult children on the East Coast.
