Eimear Kenny and Noura Abul-Husn: Translational Genomics Incarnate

There’s no overstating how far we have come since 2000 in the fledgling science of genomics, but at times it has seemed that our ability to amass information has far outstripped our ability to make that information matter by improving healthcare. As extraordinary as the technology is, it cannot get it out of the computer and into clinical practice. Enter Eimear Kenny and Noura Abul-Husn, respectively Founding Director and Clinical Director of the Institute for Genomic Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. Together, Eimear and Noura have turned their personal friendship and shared goals into translational genomics incarnate.
