Jennifer Laffin, PhD, FACMG is the new director of the Department of Pediatrics’ Genetics & Metabolism clinical laboratory fellowship program. The program comprises three fellowship opportunities — biochemical genetics, clinical cytogenetics and molecular genetics – all of which are accredited by the American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ABMGG).

It’s one of only 45 ABMGG-accredited programs nationwide, and one of only 25 to offer training in all three genetics subspecialties. These programs provide a valuable educational opportunity for postdoctoral learners interested in the growing fields of medical genetics and genomics, and precision/personalized medicine.
