Open to All - Note this is a Required component for the ABMGG LGG Alternative Certification Pathway (pre-registration required).

During this short course learners will work at tables with expert mentors. Faculty will present complex and interesting clinical cases that integrate molecular and cytogenetics and genomics testing. Everyone rotates through 7 tables split between cytogenetics and molecular genetics cases with multiple analytic parts. Topic tables rotate after 25 minutes. The cases run 10-12 minutes long, allowing two – three cases per rotation. This short course is a required live in-person component of the ABMGG LGG Alternative Certification Pathway.

  2. Prenatal Cytogenetics - Nicole Hoppman, PhD, FACMG
  3. Cytogenetics of Hematologic Malignancies - Lymphoid - Catherine Weaver Rehder, PhD, FACMG
  4. Solid Tumors Cytogenetics - Azra Ligon, PhD, FACMG
  5. Cytogenetics of Miscarriage/Infertility - Gordana Raca, MD, PhD, MS, FACMG
  6. Congenital Microarray - Yang Cao, PhD, FACMG
  7. Pre-analytic Cytogenetics - Ross A. Rowsey, PhD, FACMG
  8. Neurogenetics - Saurav Guha, PhD, MS, FACMG
  9. Inherited Cancers - Bryce A. Seifert, PhD, FACMG
  10. Repeat Expansion Disorders  - Arezou Ghazani, PhD, FACMG
  11. Common Mendelian Disorders - Jane Gibson, PhD, FACMG
