UAMS - Molecular Pathology & Myeloma Research Laboratories

The Clark Enersen Partners worked with UAMS stakeholders to design new Molecular Pathology Laboratory and Myeloma Research Laboratory spaces.

The new Myeloma Laboratory supports the research effort of world renowned Professor of Haematology, Dr. Gareth Morgan. His research focuses on the development of personalized medicine strategies for the blood cancers, including myeloma, leukemia and the lymphomas. This research leads to the design and implement of new therapeutics associated with these diseases.

The new Molecular Laboratory supports the UAMS Pathology Department, in particular FISH (Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization) testing. FISH testing proves extremely valuable in detecting cancer-promoting abnormalities in patients. The testing also helps identify chromosomal abnormalities in leukemias, including chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) cells.

Both of these new laboratory spaces support the UAMS Medical Center mission to provide patient-centered, cost-effective care through a health care system enriched by and committed to education and research.
