Attending Physician, Pediatrics, The Children's Hospital at Montefiore
Dr. Greally began his career as a pediatrician who subspecialized in clinical genetics, seeing patients with genetic syndromes, birth defects and developmental problems. Now, Dr. Greally seeks to understand how genetic disease is caused not by DNA mutations, but due to abnormalities in how genes are switched off and on – a field known as epigenomics. read more...

Lung diseasesLung cancerEarly lung cancer detection
A researcher and clinician, Dr. Spivack is developing tests for detecting lung cancer at the earliest possible stage—before it becomes fatal by spreading to other parts of the body. In one of several NIH-funded studies, his laboratory is working on a noninvasive, early-diagnosis test for lung cancer that detects particular genetic elements and chemicals in exhaled breath. read more...

Lola and Saul Kramer Chair in Molecular Genetics
Dr. Vijg studies the molecular genetic changes associated with aging. Instability of genome and epigenome – the entire set of an organism’s genes and the switches that control their activity – has long been implicated as the main cause of cancer and of the loss of organ and tissue function associated with aging. read more...
