Division of Molecular Pathology | James Molecular Laboratory
Welcome to the Division of Molecular Pathology!
Our division, based in the James Cancer Hospital and The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Department of
Pathology, provides clinical molecular diagnostic testing for a wide range of cancer conditions, cardiovascular risk, and
inheritable genetic disorders.
To provide cutting edge, clinically responsible, high-quality and cost-effective diagnostic testing; be
compassionately committed to care for every sample entrusted to us, serving the life behind the sample; and to educate
students and clinical trainees in the practice of molecular pathology and genetics.
What We Do:
Integrate genetic changes with standard microscopy to enhance diagnostics of cancer and inflammatory conditions
Improve early detection of cancer and assist in selecting therapies based on genetic profile
Deliver novel genomic assays for our institutional, academic, and industry partners
Use advanced sequencing methods to link genetic changes with standard pathology workups in cancer diagnosis
Deploy sensitive molecular methods to provide early diagnosis and post treatment monitoring of patients with cancer
Advance pre-natal and pediatric genomic testing
Develop companion diagnostics for targeted drug clinical trials in hematologic malignancies
Offer COVID-19 genomic tests including SARS-CoV-2 sequencing and surveillance for viral genomic changes
