Clinical Laboratory Science

Medical laboratory science professionals, also called clinical laboratory scientists or clinical laboratory technicians, are highly skilled scientists who discover the presence or absence of disease and provide data that help physicians determine the best treatment for the patient.

Although they are not often personally involved with patients, medical laboratory scientists and technicians play a crucial role in the process of providing personalized care. They generate vitally important data for identifying and treating cancer, heart disease, diabetes and many other health conditions.
