Dr. Pritchard is an Associate Professor and head of the genetics division of Laboratory Medicine, as well as the co-director of the genetics and solid tumors laboratory at the University of Washington Medical Center that services the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA). He completed his graduate and medical training at the University of Washington School of Medicine. The Pritchard laboratory focuses on oncology molecular diagnostics, particularly the source and utility of cell-free nucleic acid biomarkers in blood, and the development of innovative molecular diagnostics for the identification of mutations that can guide risk- assessment and therapeutic decision making. His clinical work focuses on applications of next-generation sequencing gene panels for cancer risk assessment and precision treatment. He has led the development and implementation of multiple cancer gene panel tests that are in current clinical use for cancer patients and their families.
