Associate Director of the Broad Center for Mendelian Genomics (CMG)
The Broad CMG applies large-scale genomic methods - exome, whole-genome and transcriptome sequencing - to thousands of undiagnosed rare disease families to drive novel disease gene discovery.
My research focuses on understanding the mechanisms of incomplete penetrance, using large scale reference population databases (gnomAD) to improve clinical variant interpretation, and using large scale genomics to improve rare disease gene discovery. I am a member of the American College of Medical Genetics Interpreting Sequence Variation committee and the Global Commission to End the Diagnostic Odyssey for Children with Rare Disease.
I lead the EpiChroma Clinic: a Genetics Clinic for Epigenetic and Chromatin Disorders at Boston Children's Hospital. Here I work with families impacted by genetic disorders involving the chromatin machinery which involves how our genetic code is packaged and expressed. I also see children with intellectual disability, developmental delay or inborn errors of metabolism, along with other rare genetic disorders.
