Miles to be Genentech Research Fellow

George E. Miles, MD, PhD, a clinical fellow in molecular genetic pathology, in July will become the first Genentech Research Fellow in the Department of Pathology and Immunology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

Genentech established the fellowship in the department to support the training of junior faculty interested in careers in academic pathology focused on the use of molecular genetic techniques in basic science or translational research.

The fellowship will be directed by John Pfeifer, MD, PhD, professor of pathology and immunology and the department’s vice chairman for clinical affairs, and Eric Duncavage, MD, assistant professor of pathology and immunology and director of the department’s Molecular Genetic Pathology Fellowship Program. Pfeifer and Duncavage perform research focused on the role of molecular genetic testing in the analysis of tissue specimens to improve patient diagnosis and treatment.
