• Performing screening tests for evaluating your health
• Providing complex testing for serious life-threatening conditions
• Processing and interpreting biopsies, tissue, bone marrow and fine needle aspirations
• Offering a diagnosis based on your clinical history and laboratory testing
• Overseeing quality of laboratory services within the IU Health laboratory system
