Mrinal Patnaik, M.B.B.S., is a physician in the Department of Hematology at Mayo Clinic with a keen interest in the clinical management of blood cancers. In recent years, however, Dr. Patnaik realized he wanted to develop a deeper understanding of the disease biology of these cancers and the ways that precision genomics could be used to improve therapy and quality of life for patients.  “I was looking for more training and mentorship, and to learn the skills to become an independent researcher,” says Dr. Patnaik. So he applied to Mayo's KL2 Mentored Career Development Program.
