At Mount Sinai, our research and clinical teams are tightly integrated to enable rapid translation of research insights into improved patient diagnosis and treatment. We are committed to precision medicine; tailoring medical treatments to the individual characteristics of each patient. This is done by classifying patients into subpopulations based on their susceptibility to a particular disease or response to a particular treatment, and targeting care accordingly.
Genetic Testing Lab
We're creating new and improved clinical tests using state-of-the-art technology and by developing innovative sample prep protocols and bioinformatic techniques.
We are the only lab in NY State to offer a new 30 gene diagnostic test for autism. We're developing expanded gene panels, including tri-nucleotide repeat disorders such as SCA and Fragile X. We're creating new tests for Noonan syndrome (and related disorders), limb defects, and microcephaly. Learn more
