VP, Lab Operations
Patrick Buckley heads up a highly-skilled laboratory team across our US and Ireland-based laboratories. Our labs are responsible for the end-to-end processing of biological samples including receiving various primary samples, extracting DNA & RNA, quality control and analyzing these using various genomics pipelines including large-scale genotyping and whole genome sequencing.
Patrick worked with Professor Jan Dumanski at the Department of Genetics and Pathology, Rudbeck Laboratory, Uppsala University, Sweden. Moving back to Ireland, he spent two years in the in-vitro diagnostics unit of the Irish Medicines Board (now HPRA), before moving back to research to the Department of Cancer Genetics and a lecturing position in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Therapeutics at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
Patrick then moved to Beaumont Hospital in Dublin, Ireland, to establish the Molecular Pathology Laboratory, an ISO15189 accredited genomics core facility for clinical molecular testing across all pathology departments before joining Genuity Science. He is an adjunct senior lecturer at the School of Biological Sciences at the Technology University Dublin, a co-founder of the Irish Molecular Diagnostics Network and a member of the Molecular Diagnostics advisory body at the Academy of Clinical Science and Laboratory Medicine.
Patrick completed his PhD in Clinical Genetics at Uppsala University in Sweden.
