Dr. Iqbal's research is in the area of clinical and molecular cytogenetics. He has a particular interest in the application of cytogenetic and FISH testing in the diagnosis of neoplastic as well as genetic disorders. His interests include the molecular cytogenetics of renal cell carcinoma, small round cell tumors, the cytogenetics of leukemia and lymphomas, and prenatal cytogenetic diagnostics. He has special interest in cryptic rearrangements involving subtelomere regions of human chromosomes in genetic disorders and leukemia. Dr. Iqbal is actively involved in bringing microarray technology into use as the next cytogenomics tool to translate lab innovations into postnatal, prenatal and cancer diagnosis.
