Clinical Genetics Research
Investigators in NYU Langone’s Division of Clinical Genetics perform research in genetics with the aim to improve treatments for children with genetic conditions. The division’s pediatric research foci include arthrogryposis, autism spectrum disorder, developmental delays, overgrowth syndrome, and skeletal dysplasia. Through our Pediatric Undiagnosed Diseases Program, we study families with suspected genetic diseases for whom all clinical testing has been nondiagnostic.
Faculty are studying how specific genetic factors affect the presentation of autism in hopes of creating individualized care for this increasingly prevalent condition. This research covers novel genes and novel genetic variants associated with diverse conditions, including chromosomal syndrome, neurodevelopmental disorders, and Mendelian syndromes.
Members of the division also investigate how genetic factors affect developmental delays in children and study the role of genetics in overgrowth syndromes in children and adults to help identify associated cancers.
