Clinical and Research Background

Dr. Kapur practices diagnostic surgical and autopsy pathology at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

He completed residency in Anatomic Pathology and fellowship in Pediatric Pathology at the University of Washington. Clinical areas of diagnostic excellence include enteric neuromuscular pathology and perinatal pathology. His major research focus relates to enteric neuromuscular pathology, especially Hirschsprung disease. This interest stems from his background in classic embryology and basic science studies of transgenic murine models, which dominated much of his early career development. Additional ongoing research collaborations relate to the pathogenesis of congenital viral infections (e.g., Zika virus) and focal cortical dysplasia.
