Dr. Hammond is Professor of Pathology at the University of Utah School of Medicine and Associate Professor of Internal Medicine (Cardiology) at the University of Utah School of Medicine. She is also the Chairman of the Department of Pathology at LDS Hospital and Urban Central Region, Intermountain Health Care in Salt Lake City, Utah. She has an active pathology practice in renal and cardiac pathology. Her primary transplant interest is immunopathology of heart and kidney allografts, particularly relating to humoral immune responses. She was one of the pathologists who developed the International Society of Heart and Lung Tranplantation grading schema for cardiac allograft rejection in 1990. She has written extensively on her experience with the Utah Cardiac Transplant Program. She and her colleagues reported the first prospective series of patients with humorally mediated acute vascular rejection of the cardiac allograft. She is the author of 125 original publications and 14 book chapters.
