Research Summary

The mission of the Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory is to develop and bring into clinical use already published molecular pathology assays as well as to develop new and innovative molecular tests for the diagnosis of disease and the monitoring of therapy. Various tests have been developed and are in clinical use such as detection of mutations in the prothrombin and Factor V genes that are associated with coagulation abnormalities and tests to determine monoclonality in patients with suspected hematological malignancies. We have applied quantitative polymerase chain reaction (QPCR) methods to the measurement of BCR-ABL translocation as well as less common translocations.
