Dr. Ding is an attending physician with the Cancer Center at CHOP. As for her research, she works to discover oncogenic co-dependencies using genomics data with the goal to develop novel precision medicine techniques for children with cancer. She focuses on high-risk leukemias and computational biology.

The Campbell Lab strives to develop approaches to genetic diagnosis so that every child with a genetic disease is diagnosed as quickly and accurately as possible. By harnessing the CHOP electronic health record, the lab uses state-of-the art techniques to define and diagnose genetic diseases.

Dr. Campbell is interested in approaches to improve diagnosis of children with rare genetic diseases. He also focuses on better understanding of the full spectrum of symptoms associated with genetic diseases as well as discovering new diseases.
