Brief Biography

Dr. Tracy Stockley is the Associate Director of the Molecular Genetics Laboratory. Dr. Stockley’s research interests are in the development and evaluation of enhanced molecular diagnostic assays. A major goal of this research is to incorporate state-of-the-art technology to miniaturize and automate molecular analysis in order to enhance sensitivity and economy and so facilitate the implementation of new genetic tests. Recent research projects include molecular molecular population screening for metabolic disorders (Tay-Sachs and Canavan) and analysis of point mutations in X-linked disorders (Duchenne muscular dystrophy). Dr. Stockley is also interested in genetic causes of paediatric hearing loss and in creating and evaluating molecular diagnostic assays to assess genetic mutations causing hearing loss.
