Mark your calendars! You are invited to our next GENE Career Club seminar on Friday, October 28th at 12 pm in REYN 407.
We will have the pleasure of hosting Dr. Connie Bormans from Gene by Gene!
Don’t miss her presentation about: “Beyond the degree: Opportunities in private industry and biotech”
Connie Bormans, Ph.D., is the Chief Laboratory Officer at Gene by Gene, a privately owned laboratory in Houston, TX. Dr. Bormans completed her undergraduate studies at Lafayette College and received her Ph.D. in Genetics from Texas A&M University, where she developed STR marker panels for plant breeding. As a Research Fellow at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, she managed three large-scale projects to identify genes related to cardiovascular disease before moving to Gene by Gene.
Over the last 16 years, she created numerous policies and procedures that enabled the Gene by Gene laboratory to acquire AABB, NYSDOH, and CLIA/CAP accreditations.
Her expertise involves assay design, regulatory requirements, high throughput DNA analysis including STR, SNPs, and DNA sequencing, relationship testing, clinical diagnostic testing, and, most recently, investigative genetic genealogy use in law enforcement cold cases.
Dr. Bormans grew up in New Jersey and now lives in the Houston area with her husband, Arjan Bormans, TAMU class of ’95.
