Dr. Marc Pusztaszeri obtained his medical degree from University of Lausanne, Switzerland, in 2001. He then completed a six years residency program in Pathology at CHUV, Lausanne, Switzerland. He then practiced mainly at Geneva University Hospitals, where he developed his current specialization of head and neck pathology, thyroid pathology, and cytopathology. During a visiting fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston in 2012, he established a strong connection with Prof. William Faquin, director of head and neck pathology and an important figure in cytopathology, that resulted in many collaborations. In 2017, he joined the department of Pathology of McGill University in Montreal where he is currently Associate Professor.

His clinical and research interests have focused mainly on cytopathology and surgical pathology of the thyroid gland and salivary gland tumors. He has authored or co-authored over 85 peer-reviewed publications, and has contributed to several chapters from reference textbooks for thyroid and salivary gland cytopathology.

He is recognized for his contributions for updating the Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology, and for the development of the recent Milan System for Reporting Salivary Gland Cytopathology. He serves as an editorial board member for several important journals in the field of cytopathology and as an ad hoc peer-reviewer for many other journals.
