Dr. Elizabeth McCready, PhD, FCCMG

Dr. Elizabeth McCready

Head of Molecular Cytogenetics, Hamilton Regional Laboratory Medicine Program, Ontario, Canada & Associate Professor, McMaster University, Ontario, Canada

Dr. McCready’s research activities are largely translational in nature, with particular interest in application of molecular cytogenetic techniques to characterise clinically relevant genetic variants that contribute to developmental disorders and cancer.

In this AMP 2022 session, Dr. McCready examines mutation profiles in AML and MDS from a large Southern Ontario cohort utilising two NGS panels, including OGT’s SureSeq Myeloid™ NGS panel.

Dr. McCready illustrates how the SureSeq Myeloid NGS portfolio provides her lab with robust detection of somatic mutations in high GC- content genes such as CEBPA and structural variants such as IDTs in the FLT3 gene, among others.
