Program Details

Program Description

The University of Nebraska Medical Center Department of Pathology and Microbiology is pleased to offer a 1 year ACGME-accredited fellowship in Molecular Genetic Pathology.   This fellowship will offer comprehensive exposure to all areas of molecular diagnostics and molecular pathology including those in solid tumor oncology, hematopathology, inherited diseases, infectious diseases, human identity testing, and histocompatibility. 

The CLIA-Certified Nebraska Medicine Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory and UNMC Human Genetics Laboratory  perform over 30,000 tests a year utilizing various technologies including next generation sequencing, cytogenomic arrays, FISH, real-time PCR, reverse-transcriptase PCR, pyrosequencing, PCR/fragment analysis and various multi-analyte platforms.  

The fellow will also have the opportunity to rotate in the microbiology laboratory and Nebraska Public Health Laboratory to learn about the role of molecular technologies in the epidemiology of infectious diseases and biopreparedness.  The fellow will benefit from interactions with over 15 faculty members who are nationally known in the fields of molecular diagnostics, oncology, genetics and inherited diseases, infectious diseases and histocompatibility.
