Four clinical laboratory geneticists support a complete menu of genetic assays including 1600 karyotypes, 700 SNP/CGH arrays, >5000 FISH assays, and a wide range of molecular and conventional as well as next-gen sequencing based assays.

The Medical Center has a highly collegial environment with many opportunities for collaborative research and for the development of clinical initiatives through interactions with Medical Center faculty in the Cancer Center and other Centers with interests in cancer biology, immunology and genetics. Opportunities for teaching are ample at the medical student, resident, and fellow levels.
