Laboratory Informatics

Learn more about about this subspecialty

The Laboratory Informatics group consists of eight members with appointments in multiple departments and a diversity of subspecialty interests, including bioinformatics, chemistry, cytology, data analytics, gastrointestinal pathology, genitourinary pathology, hematology, hematopathology, machine learning, microbiology, molecular pathology, quality assurance and improvement, referral testing and transfusion medicine. We have six board-certified faculty who oversee and support pathology’s information systems and technologies at each of the three hospitals in the Southwestern Medical District. We have experience in academics and the private sector as well as with software development.

With three new laboratory information systems among the hospitals; an in-house, thousand-plus-gene next generation sequencing assay; and health care networks that serve millions of patients with tens of millions of tests annually in one of the fastest-growing municipalities in the country, our division tackles a wealth of informatics challenges through custom coding efforts, database maintenance and analysis, information governance, the provision of content expertise and research.

We have a core curriculum distributed across our three- or four-year residencies featuring large- and small-group lectures and meeting and project participation. We also offer trainee and medical student electives, which we tailor to participant interests. Feel free to contact our director, Andrew Quinn (andrew.quinn@utsouthwestern.edu) to learn more about our group and what we can offer you.
