Blessed to have also been affiliated with many senior, highly experienced lymphoma pathologists since that time, who have mentored and trained him, he has worked on close to 85,000 lymphoma cases to date.
Dr. Nathwani first completed a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery at Grant Medical College in Bombay, India, in 1969, and MD in pathology in 1972. He then completed residency training in pathology at the college before immigrating to the United States for further training.

Throughout his journey in medicine, Dr. Nathwani has served as a principal investigator for a number of projects, obtained grant funding in excess of $1.8 million for research through the National Institutes of Health and National Cancer Institute, has authored approximately 170 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals, and has conducted nearly 300 lectures, seminars, courses and workshops in lymphoid diseases both in the United States and worldwide.
