Stacey Gabriel, Institute Scientist and Senior Director of the Genomics Platform, Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, led the development and execution of Broad's viral diagnostic effort. The lab rapidly became the largest single testing lab in New England and contributes substantially to national testing numbers. The path they took to our current scale of almost 200,000 tests per day will be discussed.
