I received a BSc. in cell and molecular biology from SFU in 2002. I then went on to complete the post-graduate program in Clinical Genetics at BCIT. I joined GPEC in October of 2003 as a research technologist. My responsibilities at GPEC include performing fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) on tissue microarrays to look for genetic abnormalities such as gene amplifications and translocations. I also perform other molecular cytogenetic techniques including bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) to verify FISH results and provide high resolution mapping of specific regions on chromosomes.
