research overview As a molecular pathologist, Dr. Farooqi interprets clinical genetic testing results for both pediatric and adult patients in the setting of inherited disease and oncology, including whole exome sequencing and tumor somatic profiling. His clinical interests involve the development of new clinical diagnostic tests, especially for pediatric oncology. His research interests include epigenetic profiling and single cell sequencing of pediatric liquid and solid tumors. Dr. Farooqi works closely with Dr. Erin Guest and other researchers at the Center for Pediatric Genomic Medicine. The CPGM researchers have extensive experience in all aspects of sequencing and have supported two clinical trials studying leukemia in children and infants—T2016-003 and AALL0631—by performing and analyzing whole genome, whole exome, bulk RNA, whole genome bisulfite, and single cell sequencing of patient samples in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University. The research team will be performing similar work for two current trials: AALL15P1 (studying infant leukemia) and NCT02789228 (studying multi-antigen specific lymphocytes for the treatment of pediatric solid tumors); Dr. Farooqi is the Principal Investigator for the sequencing project supporting NCT02789228 and looks forward to additional collaborative sequencing projects, especially in the areas of pediatric oncology and cancer immunotherapy.
