Veronique Neumeister's Biography

Veronique Neumeister, Laboratory Director of Specialized Translational Services Lab, Yale University School of Medicine

Veronique Neumeister is the Laboratory Director of the Specialized Translational Services Lab at Yale University, School of Medicine, Department of Pathology. She completed Medical School at the University of Vienna, Austria, followed by a Surgery Residency in Vienna, Austria. At Yale since 2007, Veronique gained extensive experience and broad-based knowledge of breast cancer research with focus on automated quantitative in situ biomarker analyses. She has also been involved in biospecimen research since 2009. The Specialized Translational Services lab (STSL) is part of the Yale Pathology Tissue Services (YPTS) since 2013. This lab is a CLIA certified institution offering services to academic and non-academic entities. Veronique focuses on in situ assessment and quantification of proteins and nucleic acids in various tissue types, on development and standardization of new companion diagnostic tests and therefore improvement of patient care.

Accurate assessment of tissue biomarkers in the research and the clinical setting is of utmost importance in order to develop reproducible and reliable assays and support the increasing efforts towards individualized molecular targeted therapy of cancer patients.  However, tissue handling and processing are not always tightly controlled and pre-analytical variables can significantly alter tissue quality and impact companion diagnostic testing. This presentation will focus on the effects of pre-analytical and analytical variables in the diagnostic and research setting. Methodology and importance of quality control, optimization and standardization of tissue processing, biomarker validation and development of useful laboratory tests for the clinical setting will be discussed.
