GGC and Clemson Partner for Genetic Research Expansion
Greenwood Genetic Center (GGC) recently recognized the 2013 graduates of its laboratory fellowship training program.
Frank Bartel, PhD, completed a laboratory fellowship in cytogenetics and has been named as an Assistant Director of GGC’s Cytogenetics Laboratory. Alka Chaubey, PhD, already board-certified in cytogenetics, completed a molecular genetics fellowship. She has worked as an Assistant Director of GGC’s Cytogenetics Laboratory since 2010. Amanda Lindy, PhD, also completed a molecular genetics fellowship and will leave GGC in September to take a position as a Review Analyst/Senior Scientist at GeneDx in Maryland.
The two-year post-doctoral fellowships include intensive training in laboratory technologies, clinical genetics and diagnostic laboratory management. GGC is one of only 44 sites in the US and the only program in SC offering such post-graduate training programs in clinical genetics, cytogenetics, biochemical genetics and molecular genetics. Since the program began in 1989, 30 fellows and residents have completed the training and have gone on to practice medical genetics or lead diagnostic laboratories.
