Saint Louis University School of Medicine

Dr. Daniela Hermelin is originally from South Florida. She graduated from Brandeis University in Boston with a combined degree in music and biology. After medical school at St. George’s University, she started a nutritional and wellness program called Wellness to Be, M.D., which she ran for five years while raising her growing family and before starting our residency program in in 2014. Although her original excitement to pursue pathology was for the anatomic pathology, she was exposed to Blood Banking and Apheresis therapy during her first year and “fell in love.” She is passionate about Transfusion Medicine with particular interests in thrombotic microangiopathies, building integrative clinical pathology consultations, and as a clinician-teacher using social media to expand and transform medical education. She is, a member of the AABB eLearning Committee, a member of the Social Media Transfusion Journal Working Group and a Board Member of the Heart of American Blood Bank Association. Dr. Hermelin will join our faculty as an Assistant Professor this July.

When not engaged in pathology, Dr. Hermelin keeps busy at home with her husband raising their six children, who ages range from thirteen through four years.

Mismatch Repair: My Journey from Pediatrics to Pathology

On St. Patrick’s Day 2014, New York’s coldest in a decade, I was a grass snake banished from the fair isle of pediatrics. In the National Residency Matching Program, just half of one percent of approximately 2,500 pediatrics slots across 194 programs remained unmatched, something like four total positions nationwide.
