Inherited Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes Postdoctoral Fellowship

Lisa J. McReynolds, M.D., Ph.D.

Work with Drs. Lisa McReynolds and Sharon Savage

The Clinical Genetics Branch has assembled and analyzed the world's largest cohort of families with Inherited Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes, systematically collecting demographic, medical, epidemiologic, genetic, and psychosocial/behavioral data, as well as carefully-annotated biospecimens to support etiologically-oriented translational research. To learn more about the IBMFS study, see Protocol: Etiologic Investigation of Cancer Susceptibility in Inherited Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes and Patient/Family Literature on the Inherited Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes cohort.

Trainees in this program have the opportunity to learn the clinical phenotype of these diseases first-hand, participate in the evaluation of clinical research protocol participants, become involved in the analysis and publication of data derived from this cohort, and acquire new skills related to clinical genetics and epidemiology. Learn more about the other advantages of being a DCEG fellow, including our distinctive research environment, mentorship, professional development, compensation and benefits, and commitment to diversity and inclusion.
