This week the LMP Q&A BUG made a visit to the Genome Diagnostics laboratory and ‘infected’ Bev Nwachukwu, Charge Technologist. The nomination came from our previous Q&A BUG ‘victim,’ Melanie Peralta. Check out Melanie’s photo Q&A, HERE.
Our genome diagnostics lab performs genetic testing on clinical samples, such as blood, bone marrow, cytology fluid, and solid tissue. The testing is performed using the latest technology and staff will examine specific genetic biomarkers in a specimen sample that correlate with specific diseases. The genome diagnostics and cytogenetic laboratories at LMP are accredited by several EQA providers including CAP, CLIA, and OLA to ensure top level quality control.
As charge technologist, Bev oversees the day to day operations of the lab, and helps ensure lab results are accurate and reliable. Through her work, and the work of the entire team in LMP’s genome diagnostics laboratory, UHN patients can receive accurate diagnoses, targeted treatments, and recovery monitoring of minimal residual diseases.
To learn more about Bev, check out her photo Q&A below. Make sure to read to the end to find out who’s next to be ‘infected’ by the LMP Q&A BUG. It could be you!
Whereabouts do you live and how do you commute to work?
What was your first job?
Where was your last road trip to?
What’s your favorite meal to make at home?
