The Molecular Diagnostics Fellowship is a two year post-doctoral program that allows PhD scientists to transition into a clinically-focused career path. The program takes place with a world-renowned faculty in the departments state-of-the-art Clinical Genomics and Advanced Technology (CGAT) Laboratory.



The CGAT Laboratory, directed by Dr. Gregory Tsongalis, performs a vast array of DNA- and RNA-based testing that supports various clinical services throughout the Dartmouth-Hitchcock healthcare system as well as a wide range of ongoing research programs. Fellows gain experience working in a clinical laboratory setting where genetic, infectious disease, oncology and hematology testing is performed using a variety of PCR, real-time PCR, microarray and next-generation sequencing platforms.



Fellows train on clinical tests during their first year while receiving increasing responsibilities related to the operation and oversight of a clinical molecular laboratory. This training includes participation in the development and validation of clinical laboratory-developed tests, reviewing molecular reports before sign-out, and preparing quality and proficiency testing data to meet the various regulatory needs of the laboratory according to standards set by CLIA and the College of American Pathologists. While the main focus of this training program is clinical molecular testing, a significant portion of this two year fellowship will be spent on independent and collaborative research.



Fellows are expected to demonstrate academic productivity by publishing in peer-reviewed journals and assisting in the education of technologists, residents and other fellows through presentations at various lectures series as well as one-on-one instruction for other trainees rotating through the laboratory.
