The Institute for Genomic Medicine at Nationwide Children’s Hospital combines diagnostics, research genomics and clinical genetics professionals into an aligned center focused on integrating genomics into patient care. The IGM Clinical Laboratory performs integrated clinical genomic, molecular, microarray, FISH and cytogenetic analyses to diagnose a broad range of inherited diseases and cancer.
The laboratory also serves as a centralized clinical testing laboratory for the Children’s Oncology Group leukemia, Wilms tumor, medulloblastoma and rhabdomyosarcoma studies. IGM collaborates with researchers and pathologists to discover and translate new molecular markers into robust clinical assays.
We emphasize collaborative interactions between clinicians, physician-scientists and basic science investigators to quickly transition cutting-edge research results into cutting-edge diagnostics using state-of-the-art technology platforms. With world-renowned experts at the helm, we are moving genomebased testing into the mainstream of pediatric diagnosis and treatment by offering comprehensive next-generation sequencing for constitutional disorders and cancer diagnoses, making results accessible and meaningful for physicians and families.
What Will You Be Doing?
• Implementation and development of high quality constitutional and cancer, cytogenetic, microarray, molecular, and genomic assays • Molecular and cytogenetic data review and interpretation, report writing and sign out • Oversight of a specialty section of the laboratory (regulatory, validation, proficiency testing) based on experience and strengths • Collaboration with clinical and research investigators to promote genomic testing in clinical care/translational studies • Education of fellows, residents, graduate students, and faculty
What Are We Looking For?
• Dual board-certified or eligible by the American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics in Clinical Molecular Genetics and Clinical Cytogenetics • Minimum 5 years directing a clinical genetics/genomics laboratory • Expertise in cancer genomics, laboratory automation, and/or clinical bioinformatics strongly desired • Experience with Next Generation sequencing assay development and data analysis (including sequence analysis, online human genomics resources, databases, molecular test design, troubleshooting). • Interpersonal skills needed to provide effective leadership to technologists and support personnel and to interact effectively with internal and external sources, including physicians, nursing, research and other hospital personnel.
