  • MBBS - St. Bartholomew's Hospital, London, 1985

Clinical Expertise

  • Diagnostic pathology with specialization in hematopathology
  • Clinical flow cytometry

Research Interests

Dr. Fiona Craig's research interests are centered on the use of flow cytometric immunophenotyping studies in the diagnosis of hematopoietic and lymphoid neoplasms. Recent and ongoing studies include identification of less well-recognized phenotypes that mimic aberrant antigen expression and use of advanced computational approaches to optimize analysis of flow cytometric data and assist in the identification of disease.
