Laboratory genetic counselors are in a unique position to contribute to the medical literature on genetic testing and genetic conditions given their exposure to a wide variety and large volume of genetic tests and results. They have the opportunity to develop in-depth experience in a given area of genetic testing due to their proximity to laboratory directors and other colleagues with clinical and laboratory expertise. These experiences, coupled with advanced skills in verbal and written communication, enable them to contribute in many ways to the medical literature and generalizable knowledge of genetic testing. This chapter will describe the types of publications and research the laboratory genetic counselor may be involved in. It also outlines the ways in which this knowledge is communicated and translated into laboratory and clinical practice.
