Assistant Clinical Laboratory Director, Children's Mercy Hospital
Dr. Emily Farrow is board certified in both genetic counseling and laboratory genetics and genomics. After a post-doctoral fellowship studying phosphate regulation and metabolic bone disease at Indiana University School of Medicine, she joined the Genomic Medicine Center (GMC) at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City in 2012. Subsequently, Dr. Farrow was named the Director of Laboratory Operations in the GMC. The GMC's focus is to use next generation sequencing to understand the role of genomics in pediatric disease, supporting research and clinical testing. The center has validated multiple clinical tests, including both short and long read genomes. In addition to her laboratory role in the GMC, Dr. Farrow is the PI on a NIH funded R25 Genomic Medicine Educational course. Her longstanding research interests include investigating how genomic test results are incorporated into clinical care, and using advanced genomic techniques to understand rare disease.
