Support teaching, research, and patient care.
I am currently serving as the Research Director for the MS in Human Genetics and Genetic Counseling program. In this part time role, I teach the Research Seminar and assist all genetic counseling students in identifying their research mentors and research project topics, as well as serving as a primary research advisor for several projects each year. <br/><br/>My own research generally focuses on the intersection between genetics and ethics, particularly around the translation of new genetic technologies (such as genome sequencing, non-invasive prenatal diagnosis and gene editing) into clinical practice. I am especially interested in patient decision making, consent and disclosure of genetic test results, and the interface between genetics and disability. In 2020-2021, I continue to complete work in CADRe (part of ClinGen) around approaches to consent and disclosure of genetic tests, and in MoTrPaC, around disclosure of various -omics results beyond genomics.
