He serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Pediatrics and is a co-leader of the Fetal Genomics Consortium. Dr. Duyzend is motivated by the potential of genomic medicine and driven by the success and challenges of unlocking the utility of genomics for all in an expeditious, effective, just, reasoned, and sound manner.
