Mariam Mathew, PhD, FACMG is a clinical director within the Institute for Genomic Medicine. She received her PhD at the University of Toronto, Canada where she focused on variant fusions in acute promyelocytic leukemia. Her interest in clinical diagnostics expanded through the course of her post-doctoral work at the University Health Network - Advanced Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory in Toronto, where she led the analytical validation and implementation process for a targeted Next Generation Sequencing panel for hematological malignancies, and contributed to designing a variant classification system directed at interpreting somatic variant profiles. In 2019, Dr. Mathew completed an ABMGG Laboratory Genetics and Genomics fellowship at the University of Chicago. Her interests focus on the application of cytogenetic and molecular techniques to understand the genetic basis of hereditary and acquired disease.
