Assistant Professor of Pathology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Bio Dr. Merker is co-director of the Stanford Medicine Clinical Genomics Service, a joint effort between Stanford Children’s Health, Stanford Health Care, and the Stanford School of Medicine. The Clinical Genomics Service is clinical and laboratory service that uses genome sequencing and other advanced molecular testing to assist in the diagnosis of genetic disease. Dr. Merker received his M.D. and Ph.D. in Genetics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He then completed residency training in Clinical Pathology and fellowship training in Molecular Genetic Pathology and Clinical Cytogenetics at Stanford Hospital and Clinics, followed post-doctoral training in cancer genomics at Stanford University. Dr. Merker also directs a research group that focuses on two areas. First, the laboratory uses classical genetics, genomics, and functional studies to identify and characterize acquired and heritable genetic variants important for the development of hematologic disorders and other malignancies. Second, the laboratory evaluates the clinical utility of genomic and other omics-based approaches for translation into clinical care.
