Biography - Richard Torres, MD

Richard Torres, MD, is a pathologist who specializes in diagnosing blood, or hematological, diseases and conditions. Some examples include anemia, leukemia, and myelodysplastic syndromes, which are a group of rare cancers. Dr. Torres is medical director of the flow cytometry and immunology labs. Both labs use fluid samples from patients to gather information that could be useful for a diagnosis. 

“As a provider, you always remember moments where you feel you were able to contribute to someone’s overall care,” Dr. Torres says. “There’s a great deal of satisfaction coming from being able to help other people.” 

When he isn’t gathering information for patient diagnoses, Dr. Torres works on research in which he helps develop new imaging tools to help visualize a patient’s tissue sample better. “We want to see tissue from a 3-D perspective, and to be able to see disease processes in a way that isn’t currently possible with regular microscopy imaging,” Dr. Torres says. 

At Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Torres is an assistant professor of laboratory medicine.
