Our guest this month is Julie Cohen, MSc, a genetic counselor at the Kennedy Krieger Institute in the Department of Neurology and Developmental Medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She provides genetic counseling to children and adult patients and their families in the Neurogenetics, Muscle Disorders, Leukodystrophy, and developmental pediatrics clinics. Julie and her KKI colleagues were early adopters of clinical exome sequencing and now incorporate this testing into routine practice for patients with undiagnosed neurological disorders. Julie’s research interests include quality of life among individuals with genetic conditions and clinical applications of new genomic technologies. A native Baltimorean, Julie received her Master’s degree from the Johns Hopkins/NHGRI Genetic Counseling Training Program.
