The Kidney Genetics Clinic utilizes a multidisciplinary team of clinicians and genetic counselors, as well as state of the art diagnostic techniques, to provide comprehensive genetic services for adult patients with rare and inherited forms of kidney disease.
These services include: Comprehensive medical evaluation for genetic forms of kidney disease
- Ordering and interpretation of genetic test results
- Pre-and post-genetic testing consent and counseling
- Guidance for medical management and follow-up care
- Referrals to other medical specialists to help address the unique medical needs of our patients
- Genetic counseling and testing for at-risk family members
- Genetic counseling and testing for living kidney donors
We have pre- and post-doctoral positions available for highly qualified candidates interested in mammalian genetics and genomics. Prior experience in molecular genetics, statistics or bioinformatics is preferred. for inquiries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by including your CV.
