The section includes faculty and staff who collaborate with other pathologists, laboratory geneticists, oncologists, and researchers across WUSM, Siteman Cancer Center, and The McDonnell Genome Institute to perform clinical molecular oncology testing for patient care and translational research. Specific responsibilities will include interpretation and sign out of a broad range of NGS-based molecular oncology testing, NGS assay design and development, NGS informatics, participation in laboratory operations (including management and accreditation) and trainee education. Involvement in clinical and translational research will be encouraged.

The Department (http://pathology.wustl.edu): The Department of Pathology & Immunology excels in basic and clinical research and delivery of outstanding pathology and laboratory medicine services. The Department and the University have a long history in molecular oncology, including sequencing of the first cancer genome (2009), launch of one of the first clinically accredited cancer sequencing panels (2011), and use of clinical WGS for oncology (2021). In 2015, the department moved to a new facility at the center of the Washington University Medical Campus. The Department provides a supportive environment for research and teaching.
