Roni Zemet, MD, is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine. Dr. Zemet obtained her medical degree as a graduate of the Hebrew University Hadassah Medical School in Jerusalem. She completed a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Sheba Medical Center, Israel. During her residency, Dr. Zemet initiated and led various clinical studies in the field of obstetrics, with emphasis on high-risk pregnancies, human reproduction, and fetal imaging. After completing obstetrics and gynecology training, she began a residency in medical genetics and genomics at Baylor College of Medicine. During genetics residency, her research has focused on prenatal and preconception genetics. She has explored the isolation and analysis of intact fetal cells from maternal blood with Dr. Ignatia Van den Veyver, and different methods to identify low-level mosaicism in parents of a fetus or a child with a genetic disorder caused by an apparent de novo variant with Dr. Pawel Stankiewicz and Dr. Van den Veyver. These projects have a translational significance in understanding and providing prenatal risk assessment, advanced testing, diagnosis, and counseling for families. Furthermore, she is involved in clinical studies of the application of novel sequencing and cytogenetic technologies for prenatal diagnosis and management. Dr. Zemet is interested in medical education, and she served on the planning committee of the clinical genetics CME conferences, and is giving lectures about reproductive genetics to Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility fellows.
