Center for Medical Genetics and Genomics
The Center for Medical Genetics and Genomics of UPMC is committed to the treatment and study of genetic disorders spanning the life cycle from pregnancy, through childhood, and into adulthood.
Our diverse team of medical geneticists and genetic counselors helps families understand genetic disease, provides information about risk factors, and explains and interprets genetic tests.
Clinical services at the Center for Medical Genetics and Genomics are seamlessly integrated with our laboratory testing sites at Pittsburgh Cytogenetic Laboratory, Pregnancy Screening Laboratory, and the Division of Molecular Diagnostics. We are a one-stop, patient-friendly facility, assuring accurate communication of testing results to referring physicians and patients.
As part of our educational mission, Center for Medical Genetics and Genomics clinicians are actively involved in medical genetics training of medical students, fellows, residents, and genetic counseling interns. We also instruct community physicians in aspects of medical genetics relevant to their educational and patient care needs.
