Staff Scientist

Fee, Timothy

Dr. Fee came to the GGC in 2016 as a Staff Scientist in the Microarray Laboratory. His previous studies include synthesis and mechanics of biomaterials, image processing, tissue engineering scaffold characterization, and gene expression induced by the cellular substrate topology. At the GGC, he uses this engineering background to assist in microarray testing, data analysis, and procedural optimization. He is also involved in developing new diagnostic testing options based on Digital PCR technology.

Dr. Fee has recently developed a SNP Array Interpretation Guide as a resource for laboratory diagnosticians involved in SNP array analysis. It covers the main types of aberrations visible on SNP array as well as more complex mosaic situations. This work was presented (virtually) at the American Cytogenetics Conference in June 2021 and can be downloaded here.

One Mother's Story

After a long three-year struggle trying to have children, our son, Charlie, was born on April 18, 2009. He was our miracle...perfect in every way! When Charlie was five days old, our pediatrician called to notify us that one of the numbers from the heel prick test was a bit high. We headed to the hospital that afternoon for more tests. I will never forget the following day. It was cool and crisp - not a cloud in the sky. The next thing I know, our ...
