Genomics and Pathology Services (GPS) contributes to and benefits from a unique Clinical Genomics Training Program that leverages the expertise of faculty from the Department of Genetics and the Department of Pathology & Immunology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Our combined excellence in research and clinical service is reflected in our dedication to training outstanding students in clinical genomics.
In addition to the focus areas of the fellowship, fellows receive training on and actively participate in GPS clinical activities including molecular genomic wet lab work, bioinformatic analyses, and case review and genomic interpretation.
