Miao Pan, PhD, is an assistant professor in the Department of Pathology at The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences and a board-certified director of Molecular and Biochemical Genetics Laboratories at Children's National Hospital in Washington, D.C.. Prior to joining GW, he completed both Laboratory Genetics and Genomics (LGG) Fellowship and Clinical Biochemical Genetics (CBG) Fellowship at National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda, M.D.

Clinical Expertise

  Dr. Pan's clinical practice focus is to provide molecular and biochemical genetic test analysis, interpretation and report from next generation sequencing (NGS), chromosomal microarray (CMA), tandem mass spectormetory and other methods.



Dr. Pan is interested in all aspects of biochemical and molecular genetics and currently performing two research projects funded by the NIH: 1) Pediatric Mendelian Genomics Research Center 1U01HG011745; 2) Machine-Assisted Interdiscplinary Approach For Early Clinical Evaluation of Neurodevelopmental Disorders 1UG3TR004033.
