Sr. Medical Science Liaison - Clinical Research

Ambry Genetics

Ms. Horton received her M.S. in Genetic Counseling from Arcadia University and practiced clinically as a cancer genetic counselor in Memphis, TN prior to joining Ambry Genetics 6 years ago. As a reporting genetic counselor at Ambry, she performed variant assessment, generated reports for oncology tests, and curated clinical literature for report content. In her current role as Sr. Medical Science Liaison, she designs and conducts studies focusing on the translational application of Ambry's research. Ms. Horton's research interests include improving the clinical utility of and increasing access to genetic testing.

Associate Director, Clinical Research

Ambry Genetics

Dr. Marcy Richardson graduated from Georgetown University with her PhD in Tumor Biology in 2009. Dr. Richardson then joined the University of California, San Diego as post-doctoral fellow researching epigenetics. She began working as a Variant Assessment Scientist at Ambry Genetics in 2015 where she focused on developing variant classification guidelines and investigating complex variants in cancer predisposition genes. Currently, as Associate Director, Clinical Research, Dr. Richardson leads a team that is focused on the analysis and dissemination of genetic data to advance science and medicine. In this role, she guides both independent research and fosters collaborations around the globe. Dr. Richardson participates in and has a leadership role in several expert panels including ENIGMA, GA4GH, and the BRCA1/2 and APC ClinGen Variant Curation Expert Panels (VCEPs).

Sr. Medical Science Liaison - Medical Genetics

Ambry Genetics

Catherine received her MS in Genetic Counseling from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and practiced clinically as a multidisciplinary genetic counselor in Birmingham, AL prior to joining Ambry 7 years ago. As a Genomic Science Liaison for the Southcentral United States, she served as a clinical liaison for the field team to educate health care providers on genetic testing and genomic medicine. In her current role as a Sr. Medical Science Liaison, Catherine engages key opinion leaders and members of the medical and scientific community to advance the development of novel testing approaches and improve the utility of existing clinical tests.
