While Dr. Mary Ann McLane, PhD, MLS(ASCP) is currently a professor in the Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences at the University of Delaware, she has a long history of making an impact wherever she works. In 2013, for example, she helped Christiana Care Hospital’s clinical laboratory staff members publish their experience in developing a new Performance Improvement system.

Using her research and grant/manuscript preparation skills, and by learning about evidence-based diagnostics and screening from Oxford University, she created a manuscript (published in 2014) detailing the implementation of the lab’s new ALERT system, which has improved patient safety and enhanced communication between the medical laboratory staff and emergency department clinicians.
