major genomics initiatives at Penns Center for Personalized Diagnostics (CPD)
and CHOPs Division of Genomic Diagnostics, this fully integrated
hematopathology program will enable us to leverage our considerable strengths
and resources to make our program the destination of choice for faculty,
fellows and residents. Given the major advancements in both adult and pediatric

a very broad array of clinical material at two of the top adult and childrens
hospitals in the country. The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
has made major investments in next generation sequencing-based molecular
diagnostics, and on-going adoptive T cell therapy clinical trials for adult and
childhood leukemias affording hematopathologists numerous opportunities for
scholarly work in cutting-edge basic and translational research efforts.
We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense.
