Cincinnati Children's has an exceptional opportunity for a Human Genetics Clinical Faculty candidate to join the Division of Human Genetics.
Mission: The Division of Human Genetics at Cincinnati Children’s leverages genomic technology to provide world-class clinical care, train the next generation of caregivers and researchers, and develop new therapies for our patients and others like them around the world.
We work at the forefront of genomic medicine and research to diagnose even the rarest diseases and provide outstanding care, as well as discover and implement therapies to improve the health of all children. As a leader in pediatric health, our approach is to integrate a culture of genomics through institution-wide collaboration in both research and clinical initiatives that cross every subspecialty at Cincinnati Children’s.
The Division of Human Genetics features three key areas:
In our clinics, we use a precision-medicine approach so that our geneticists, genetic counselors, advanced practice and registered nurses diagnose, manage and treat genetic diseases in children and adults – taking into account individual variations and responses to treatment. Geneticists, genetic counselors, advanced practice registered nurses and registered nurses all participate in clinical care. Clinical research trials are available in many areas.
In addition, we provide comprehensive services through our Genetics and Genomics Diagnostic Laboratory, which offers leading-edge technology for cytogenetic and molecular genetic testing for a variety of disorders. Our biochemical laboratories (Special Chemistry and Laboratory for Mass Spectrometry) are located in the main hospital complex.
The world of genomics is evolving rapidly − and our investigators are at the front line of basic science discovery, as well as translational and clinical trial research. Our investigators’ ultimate goal is to bring genomics into medical care through discovery of better diagnoses, therapeutics, and disease prevention. To do this, we use innovative methods to discover new genes and genetic mutations, diagnose and treat rare diseases, and gain deeper understanding of basic biological events, such as preterm birth or craniofacial development. Learn more about some of our key programs.
The Division of Human Genetics is a leader in genetics education. Cincinnati Children’s offers combined Genetics/ Pediatric residency and Categorical Clinical Genetics residencies, as well and ABMGG accredited laboratory fellowships in LGG and Biochemical Genetics. And the Genetic Counseling Graduate Program is one of the oldest and largest such programs in the United States.
In addition, we have a Grassroots Genomics Speaker Series – a series of videos explaining genomics and how it is used in pediatric medicine − and our Genomic Discovery & Translational Series of talks from outside speakers.
