The research of Myra J. Wick, M.D., Ph.D., includes the diagnosis and management of genetic conditions. She studies genetic diseases present before pregnancy through adulthood. In the time before birth and in the newborn intensive care unit, also called the NICU, genetic conditions are important causes of health problems and mortality.
Rapid diagnosis in the NICU may significantly impact patient management and outcomes.
Hereditary cancer syndromes are usually identified in adulthood. The diagnosis of a cancer that's genetically passed down from a family member has significant implications for clinical management and long-term health outcomes.
Dr. Wick's research works to directly improve the diagnosis and management of genetic conditions from before pregnancy through adulthood.
