Hawazin Faruki, DrPH, is the vice president of clinical development at LabCorp. She has more than 15 years of experience in clinical molecular diagnostics. She joined LabCorp in 1998 and has served in a variety of roles during her tenure, including vice president of operations for the centralized molecular diagnostic facility in Research Triangle Park, NC.
Dr Faruki has been involved in the successful introduction of numerous molecular diagnostic tests—from some of the earliest clinical applications in bloodborne pathogen detection to more recent pharmacogenetic applications.
