  • Offer comprehensive molecular training to residents and fellows 

The Molecular Pathology team, led by Janina Longtine, MD and David Y. Zhang MD, PhD, MPH, has extensive experience in routine clinical service, assay development, validation, implementation, and quality control. We are also in full compliance with regulations established by the FDA, New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO), and the College of American Pathologists (CAP).
