Debra G.B. Leonard, M.D., Ph.D. is Professor, Vice Chair for Laboratory Medicine, Director of the Clinical Laboratories, and Director of the Pathology Residency Training Program in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. As of July 1, 2009, Dr. Leonard was appointed Chief Diversity Officer for Weill Cornell Medical College. She is an expert in molecular diagnostics for genetic, cancer and infectious diseases. Her M.D. and Ph.D. degrees were completed at the New York University School of Medicine, where she also did her postgraduate clinical training in Anatomic Pathology, including a Surgical Pathology Fellowship. She is certified by the American Board of Pathology in Anatomic Pathology, and by the American Boards of Pathology and Medical Genetics in Molecular Genetic Pathology. Currently, Dr. Leonard is a member of the Institute of Medicine Roundtable on Translating Genomic-based Research for Health and Chair of the Diagnostic Applications Working Group of this Roundtable. Dr. Leonard is a past member of the Secretary's Advisory Committee on Genetics Health and Society (SACGHS) to Secretary Michael O. Leavitt, and a past President of the Association for Molecular Pathology. She has spoken widely on various molecular pathology test services, the future of molecular diagnostics and the impact of gene patents on molecular pathology practice and patient access to molecular diagnostic testing services. Most recently, Dr. Leonard was honored by receiving the 2009 Leadership Award from the Association for Molecular Pathology.
"This is an invaluable source of information for all practicing molecular pathologists, medical geneticists, pathology and genetics residents, and molecular pathology fellows. It also will be useful to surgical and clinical pathologists, hematologists, oncologists, internists, scientists who undertake disease-related basic science and translational research, and medical laboratory technologists. ... All chapters are written by pathologists and scientists experienced in the practical applications of clinical molecular pathology tests. ... I highly recommend this as one of the must-have and must-read books." (Michel Nasr, Doody's Book Reviews, June, 2016)
