Lucas Bronicki, PhD

Molecular Diagnostic Laboratory Fellow

Lucas Bronicki web

Dr. Bronicki is a laboratory fellow in the clinical molecular genetics training program. During his doctorate, he studied the expression of RNA-binding proteins in the nervous system and skeletal muscles, in the contexts of development and disease. During his training, Dr. Bronicki has obtained significant experience with various diagnostic molecular genetics assays, with a focus on Next Generation Sequencing, interpreting test results, developing and implementing novel molecular diagnostic assays, collaborating on clinical research projects and teaching students. Within the field of molecular genetics, he is primarily interested in neurogenetics, particularly the genetic causes of neurological disorders such as intellectual disability.
