Advances in Molecular Pathology is an annual review publication that covers the current practices and latest developments in the field of Molecular Pathology. Each issue is divided into sections for comprehensive coverage of all subspecialty areas within molecular pathology, including, Genetics, Hematopathology, Infectious Disease, Pharmacogenomics, Informatics, Solid Tumors, and special topics on COVID-19. The Editor-in-Chief of the publication is Dr. Gregory Tsongalis, a leading expert in the field. Topics covered this year include but are not limited to: Phenotype Association and Variant Pathogenicity Prediction Tools in Genomic Analysis; The application of noninvasive prenatal screening to detect copy number variations; Next generation cytogenomics using optical mapping; Review of molecular in APL; NGS for MRD in acute leukemia; Review of emerging technologies as they pertain to infectious disease testing; Germline genetic variants that predict drug response; Nutrigenomics; PGx of hypertension; Genomic data for blood typing, specifically both through NGS and arrays; Preanalytic Variables and Tissue Stewardship for Reliable Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) Clinical Analysis; and Cell-free nucleic acids in cancer: Current approaches, challenges, and future directions.

About the Editor

Gregory Tsongalis

Gregory Tsongalis, PhD, HCLD, CC, FNACB., is the Vice Chair for Research and the Director of the Laboratory for Clinical Genomics and Advanced Technology (CGAT) in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and Norris Cotton Cancer Center (NCCC) in Lebanon, NH. He is a Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the Audrey and Theodor Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth in Hanover, NH and a member of the NCCC Molecular Therapeutics Program and the gastrointestinal and breast cancer clinical oncology groups. In 2016 he became a member of Dartmouth College’s Program in Experimental and Molecular Medicine (PEMM), and he has served on the advisory board of the Health Care Genetics Professional Science Master’s Degree Program and Diagnostic Genetic Sciences Program at the University of Connecticut (Storrs, CT). His area of expertise is in the development and implementation of clinical molecular diagnostic technologies. His research interests are in the pathogenesis of human cancers, personalized medicine and disruptive technologies. He has authored/edited twelve textbooks in the field of molecular pathology, published more than 230 peer reviewed manuscripts, and has been an invited speaker at both national and international meetings. He has served on numerous committees of the American Association for Clinical Chemistry, the American Society for Investigative Pathology, the Federation for American Societies for Experimental Biology, and the Association for Molecular Pathology (where he is a past President). He is active in the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology, the Association for Molecular Pathology, the American Association for Clinical Chemistry, the American Association of Bioanalysts, and the American Society for Investigative Pathology. He serves on the editorial boards of 8 journals including Clinical Chemistry, Experimental and Molecular Pathology, and the Journal of Molecular Diagnostics. In 2016, Dr. Tsongalis received the Norris Cotton Cancer Center Award for Excellence, in 2017 the Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) Jeffrey A. Kant Leadership Award, and in 2019 the American Society for Investigative Pathology Robbins Distinguished Educator Award. He also serves on numerous corporate scientific advisory boards.
