Center for Human Genetics & Genomics Genetic Medicine
At NYU Langone’s Center for Human Genetics and Genomics, we are advancing the practice of clinical genetics to provide the best care for our patients. Among medical professionals and the public, there is widespread expectation that genomics will lead to improved diagnosis of and new treatments for both rare and common genetic disorders.
In partnership with fellow physicians, physician–scientists, researchers, and genetic counselors, we are launching several programs to help us meet this challenge.
Program in Genetic Medicine
We have begun the process of developing a program in genetic medicine by bringing together some of the world’s leading experts for a series of roundtable discussions. These sessions allow us to consider all of the possibilities for clinical genetics in personalized medicine and realize our aim of using clinical genetics to enhance clinical practice across departments. Our goal is to be leaders in the field of genetics-based diagnosis, treatment, and management.
Genetic Medicine Colloquium
Our Genetic Medicine Colloquium provides a forum for our community to hear and discuss clinical genetics research and applications at NYU Langone. The series also serves as a venue for genetics case conferences.
See our events calendar for more information about our upcoming seminar schedule.
Pediatric Undiagnosed Diseases Program
Our Pediatric Undiagnosed Diseases Program, co-directed by Gilad D. Evrony, MD, PhD, faculty member in the Center for Human Genetics and Genomics, and John G. Pappas, MD, associate professor in the Department of Pediatrics, uses advanced genomics technologies to find molecular-genetic diagnoses for children with diseases whose cause is unknown.
