Emily Groopman

Post-doctoral research fellow, Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard
I am a postdoctoral research fellow in the O'Donnell-Luria Laboratory (Translational Genomics Group, Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and Boston Children's Hospital). I was born and raised in Brookline, MA, and graduated magna cum laude with Highest Honors in Human Evolutionary Biology from Harvard University. I received my MD/PhD from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons; for my doctoral dissertation, I investigated the diagnostic utility of exome sequencing for kidney disease. In addition, I am an active member and Biocurator for multiple ClinGen Clinical Domain Working Group, including the Aminoacidopathy, Cerebral Creatine Deficiency Syndromes, and Urea Cycle Disorder Expert Panels. I hope to pursue a career as a physician-scientist in pediatrics and medical genetics, helping advance the care of individuals with rare genetic diseases and their families through conducting bench-to-bedside research. Outside of the lab, I enjoy hiking, reading, yoga, cooking and baking.
