She is the Associate Director for Clinical Ethics and Education for the Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics (SCBE) and is Co-Chair of the Ethics Committees at Stanford Hospital and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. Her research focuses on ethical issues in genetics and genomics, specifically return of results and translation for exome and whole genome sequencing. She received her PhD in Epidemiology from Stanford in 2002, and then was a Senior Scientist at the Stanford Human Genome Center.

Prior to her work at SCBE she spent eight years at the Treuman Katz Center for Pediatric Bioethics at Seattle Children’s Research Institute and at the University of Washington.
My research focuses on ethical issues in genetics and genomics, specifically return of results and translation for exome and whole genome sequencing and translation of genomic sequencing into the clinical setting. I also conduct research on ethical issues in clinical care and research for patients and families with autism and other developmental and cognitive disabilities.
