    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Dr. Lager’s research and clinical interests are focused on using clinical cytogenetic and molecular genetic modalities for the investigation and discovery of neoplasm-associated genetic abnormalities. She’s interested in employing sophisticated clinical laboratory diagnostics toward discovery of novel disease markers, and using these markers for patient prognosis and treatment stratification.
