The Molecular Diagnostics Service in the Department of Pathology develops and performs numerous sophisticated clinical laboratory tests for the comprehensive molecular profiling of tumors. This helps clinicians define cancer diagnoses and make treatment decisions, including enrollment in clinical trials.
Candidate should perform and maintain competency in the complex DNA/RNA Molecular Diagnostic assay/tasks according to established operational procedures under supervision. Analyze and interpret test results. Work with supervisor to review/troubleshoot procedures and work assignments. Maintain complete documentation for assay tracking and results for review/reporting.
Molecular Diagnostics Service i s a cutting-edge clinical laboratory with access to the most advanced robotic and automated instruments. DMP hastwo of our premier tests: MSK-IMPACT and MSK-ACCESS. MSK-IMPACT has been authorized by the US Food & Drug Administration as a clinical test and has been used to profile tumor and normal DNA samples from more than 40,000 MSK cases as part of their clinical care. Liquid biopsy applications such as MSK-ACCESS examine circulating cell-free DNA to enable genomic characterization of cancers where genomic tissue is not available and permits longitudinal monitoring of disease burden.
