Pathology Projects and Connections That Matter

"As Associate Project Manager, I oversee many ongoing projects, as well as assist with project mentoring. Some of the projects I love working on are connected to our immunohistochemistry (IHC) testing portfolio. I’ve learned so much about the end-to-end processing and the overall product from the talented members of the Pathology team and other key stakeholders involved. I’m most proud of helping launch four new IHC assays and watching the overall portfolio of testing products expand."
