ResearchOur group has been involved in the study and evaluation of genetic counseling methodology(ies) and the development of innovative teaching strategies for genetic counseling students, residents, and fellows as well as the medical and lay communities. Clinically we have been involved with studies related to reproductive carrier screening, particularly in the Ashkenazi Jewish community. We have been at the forefront of reproductive technologies with our Maternal-Fetal medicine faculty as well as the impact of these technologies on women. We continue to be involved with the ethical and social impact of genetics (and genomics) on society.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
