  • Assistant Director, Cytogenetics Laboratory
  • Assistant Professor of Pathology


Jaclyn is from Houston, TX, and received her Ph.D. from Baylor College of Medicine in the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics in 2016. Before that, she received a Bachelor of Science degree from Texas A&M University at College Station. After completing her Ph.D., Jaclyn completed her postdoctoral training at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in the Laboratory for Molecular Medicine. She then completed her Laboratory Genetics and Genomics Fellowship at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Dr. Murry joined the faculty as an Assistant Professor of Pathology in July 2021, where she is serving as the Assistant Director of the Cytogenomics laboratory. Her areas of clinical expertise include cytogenetics and cytogenomics, as well as molecular genetics, and her research interests include chromosomal disorders and the mechanisms of structural aberrations and copy number variation.
