Careers in Laboratory Medicine

Come listen to clinical chemist Kazunori Murata discuss careers in Laboratory Medicine. This presentation is targeted toward PhD’s and MD’s considering a transition away from a career in traditional basic science research. 

Topics covered in this talk include:

  • An introduction to laboratory medicine
  • The role PhD’s and MD’s play in laboratory medicine
  • Training for a career in laboratory medicine
  • Career paths for PhD’s and MD’s
  • The presentation will end with a brief overview of fellowship training programs in laboratory medicine at MSK.

Dr. Murata is currently an assistant attending clinical chemist in the Department of Laboratory Medicine at MSK, where he directs the protein immunology and special chemistry laboratories. He is also the director of the postdoctoral training program in clinical chemistry at MSK.

Dr. Murata obtained his PhD from Johns Hopkins, where he conducted research on the role of complement in transplant rejection. He then completed a two-year fellowship in clinical chemistry at the Mayo Clinic prior to his appointment at MSK. He is board certified in clinical chemistry.


This program is for the MSK postdoctoral community.
