Karen Baty

I am a mitochondrial diagnostic technician within the NCG Mitochondrial Diagnostic Service. This role involves providing technical support to the molecular team, who work towards giving a molecular diagnosis to patients clinically affected with mitochondrial disorders.I work alongside clinical scientists and other molecular technicians, as well as scientists in the other sections of the diagnostic service, biochemistry and histochemistry.

I was motivated to work in a diagnostic lab, particularly a lab dealing with patients affected with mitochondrial diseases because of the importance of finding and providing an answer to families who are affected with debilitating mitochondrial disorders.
