Lab Directors

Located within a world-renowned academic medical center, the Mount Sinai Genetic Testing Laboratory offers state-of-the-art technology and decades of experience.  We take pride in giving careful attention to every specimen that enters our laboratory.  Our laboratory directors are available to address any questions you may have about genetic testing for your patients.  They’re also expanding screening options for patients by developing new and improved genetic tests.  In 2014, for example, the Mount Sinai Genetic Testing Laboratory launched an expanded carrier screening panel for people of Ashkenazi Jewish descent and a more accurate carrier screening test for spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). These tests are being offered at Mount Sinai and actively licensed to other clinical laboratories.
