Diane Dunn is a Senior Research Specialist and supervises our clinical genetic testing lab. A native New Yorker, Diane began her career at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory headed by famed DNA pioneer, Jim Watson. In 1982, she moved west to join Ray Gesteland’s lab at the University of Utah. As an original staff member in the Department of Human Genetics, she has co-authored over 70 peer-reviewed publications involving genetics, genomes, and human disease genes. Diane loves being in the lab and helping fellow lab mates, but when not sequencing DNA at the bench, she can be found in her garden surrounded by flowers, vegetables, and the occasional cat.
