    Kyle Brothers and Mildred Cho: How to Talk about Race in Designing Genetic Research

    If you are a clinician, researcher, or editor working in genetics, you are probably aware of the toxic history of our field with regard to race. And (JAMA editors aside, apparently) you are probably aware that this is not just a historical problem, but something affecting medical practice today. How do we move forward in a fashion that is not racist – or, better yet, anti-racist?

    Eimear Kenny and Noura Abul-Husn: Translational Genomics Incarnate

    There’s no overstating how far we have come since 2000 in the fledgling science of genomics, but at times it has seemed that our ability to amass information has far outstripped our ability to make that information matter by improving healthcare. As extraordinary as the technology is, it cannot get it out of the computer and into clinical practice. Enter Eimear Kenny and Noura Abul-Husn, respectively Founding Director and Clinical Director of the Institute for Genomic Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York.

    Diana Bianchi on Prenatal Testing

    Diana Bianchi began her career in genetics so long ago that she needed to make one thing clear: “I’m not that old. I just started young.” And it’s true! Diana fell in love with the study of chromosomes back in high school and returned to it as a pediatrician and a specialist in neonatal medicine. From the start of her career, she has been absorbed in the question of how to pull information on the fetus from the maternal bloodstream.
