Fee, Timothy

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.

Meet Reggie Roper

Reggie has been part of the GGC family for over 18 years. He has short stature, webbing of his hands, pulmonary stenosis, seizures and hydrocephalus along with developmental delay. He carried an initial diagnosis of cardiofaciocutaneous (CFC) syndrome; however, as genetic testing advanced, GGC made the diagnosis of Noon...
