We have the privilege of doing something that changes and improves lives. The ability to rapidly sequence a genome is helping to save newborns and children in intensive care. We’re thrilled every time a diagnosis prevents disability or death.
It is an awesome pleasure to work with such a gifted group of folks that like to get things done - I love that we are singularly focused on saving lives TODAY. That sense of urgency translates into everything we do.
For over 22 years, I’ve worked in newborn medicine. The birth of a healthy infant is wonderful. The death of a baby is devastating. Now I have the awesome privilege of working with a talented team dedicated to using major advances in genomics to save the lives of infants and children.
The work we are doing is personal and inspiring, and it's changing the way medicine is implemented in clinical practice. The information we are providing through genomic sequencing is empowering not only for physicians but for families.
When you make a diagnosis and it allows you to change management and actually help a kid and make them better, it’s one of the greatest thrills there is. Being in a place where we can do that day in and day out is wonderful.
