Human Genomics in Development and Disease

Carole Oddoux, Ph.D.


Dr. Carole Oddoux, PhD, is Molecular Pathology Laboratory Director at Montefiore Medical Center of Pediatrics. She is Co-Founder of the Clinical Molecular Genetics Laboratory at the New York University School of Medicine, one of the largest reference genetic testing laboratories in New York State. In that role, she devoted 15 years to the study of the genetic basis of Mendelian disorders in Jewish populations and implemented new genetic tests and screening programs to benefit Jewish people. Dr. Oddoux has a strong interest in population genetics and the use of state-of-the-art understanding of the genetic basis of human disease and human genomics in the development of cost-effective high throughput molecular diagnostic tests for predictive risk assessment. She is a collabor on the Jewish Hapmap project; her research interests also extend to breast and prostate cancers.

Dr. Oddoux received her undergraduate degree at Queens College and her doctoral degree at the City University of New York. She pursued post-doctoral training in biochemistry at the Linsley F. Kimball Research Institute of the New York Blood Center and in molecular biology at Cornell University Medical College. Dr. Oddoux went on to train in clinical molecular genetics at New York University School of Medicine, where she subsequently joined the faculty. In Fall 2011, she joined the faculty at Montefiore Medical Center, where she will focus on the development of novel diagnostics for the populations of the Bronx in the areas of Mendelian disorders and oncology.
