Guest Name and Bio:
Suneer “Sunny” Jain, M.S., Chief Executive Officer, Sun Genomics.
Mr. Jain earned his Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree from the
University of Iowa in 1999. He went on to graduate with a Masters
in Anatomy and Cell Biology from the Department of Anatomy and Cell
Biology at the University of Iowa in 2004, where he conducted
research in the field of Microbiology and Gene Therapy. Following
graduation, Mr. Jain began his career as a Research and Development
Supervisor for Pathway Diagnostics. Here he developed new molecular
biomarker assays for clinical trials and out-licensing
opportunities, planned and performed studies for the development
and optimization of molecular assay(s) such as RNA/DNA extractions,
(q)RT-PCR, PCR, SNP genotyping, Indel detection, gene
rearrangement, and mutation status.
Mr. Jain focused his career in 2007 towards clinical patient testing while working for LabCorp in the molecular oncology laboratory. During his time at LabCorp, Sunny participated in the development and launch of new lymphoma and leukemia molecular assays such as T-Cell GR, BCR/ABL, improved and troubleshooted existing assays such as Jak2, FLT3, IgVh somatic hypermutation, B-Cell GR, and MSI; he also reviewed and oversaw the scheduling and completion of Proﬁciency testing for CAP and NYS, and submitted validations and received approval from the New York State DOH on multiple assays.
In 2009, Mr. Jain began working as a Lab Manager and Technical Supervisor in a Clinical Services Laboratory for industry leader, Illumina. At Illumina, Sunny managed the world’s first CLIA Whole Genome Sequencing Lab at Illumina for seven (7) years and was a part of the team that established the Illumina Clinical Services Laboratory and the first Clinical Laboratory to sequence the whole human genome in a CLIA-certified, CAP-accredited laboratory introducing NGS technology into a clinical setting. Additionally, he led a zero deficiency CAP inspection as acting quality manager/general supervisor/technical supervisor from 2011-2015, authored state of the art assay validation studies for Whole Genome Sequencing as an LDT, managed site relocation, re-verification studies, and HiSeq 2000 validations for Whole Genome Sequencing, and restructured payment processing workflow in a SAP for a laboratory generating over $5 Million per year.
