Pathology faculty welcome Hobart

Hobart_HollyDr. Holly Howard Hobart, an American Board of Medical Genetics-certified clinical cytogeneticist, has joined the Medical Center faculty as an associate professor of pathology.

After receiving a B.A. in economics from Rice University, Houston, Texas, in 1970, Hobart earned the M.S. in ecology and evolutionary biology in 1984 and the Ph.D. in cytogenetics, genetics, ornithology and evolutionary biology in 1991 at the University of Arizona, Tucson. He did a postdoctoral fellowship in human clinical cytogenetics in the Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics at the Indiana University Medical School, Indianapolis, from 1991-93.

After completing his postdoctoral fellowship and attaining board certification, Hobart served as laboratory director at the Palo Verde Laboratory, Tempe, Ariz., from 1993-1999; as laboratory director, locum tenens, of the Clinical Cytogenetics Laboratory at Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Ottawa, Canada, from 2000-01; as research associate professor and laboratory director of the Nevada Genetics Laboratories and of the Molecular Cytogenetics Laboratory in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Nevada School of Medicine from 2001-08; as associate professor and laboratory director of the Clinical Cytogenetics Laboratory in the Department of Medical Genetics and the Department of Pathology at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine from 2008-11; and as technical director of the Immunogenetics Laboratories at Penrose Hospital, Centura Health, Colorado Springs, from 2011-12. He has since served as temporary laboratory director of the Clinical Cytogenetics Laboratory at UMMC.

A fellow of the American College of Medical Genetics, Hobart is an active member of several professional organizations, including the American Society of Human Genetics, the Association of Genetics Technologists, the International Standards for Cytogenomic Arrays (ISCA) Consortium, the Cancer Cytogenomics Microarray Consortium and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He is the coauthor of 14 articles in peer-reviewed professional publications and has authored or coauthored more than 20 presentations nationally.
