A funded, one-year fellowship position in Medical Biochemical Genetics is available July 1, 2023 for a US or Canadian physician at Emory University in sunny Atlanta.
Emory is the only metabolic center for patients with inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) and newborn screening follow up in the State of Georgia. The metabolic clinic is staffed by 5 metabolic clinicians (Drs. Michael Gambello, Hong Li, Rossana Sanchez, Juanita Neira, and myself), a team of metabolic dieticians led by Dr. Rani Singh, nurses, genetic counselor and care coordinator. We follow a large cohort of patients with a broad variety of disorders and see new referrals every week. Currently we are actively following nearly 900 patients with intermediary IEM and about 400 patients with lysosomal storage diseases and peroxisomal disorders. We provide inpatient consultation services to adults at Emory University Hospital and children at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. There are many ongoing phase I to III clinical trials, NIH funded pilot newborn screening projects, and abundant opportunities for research. The trainee has a 4 week rotation at a biochemical genetics laboratory to learn state-of-the-art biochemical genetic testing and its interpretation.
Emory University is in a wooded suburb of Atlanta along with the CDC and contains a large park with trails and a lake. The campus and environs are quite beautiful in the spring and fall. Atlanta is a cosmopolitan, welcoming city full of transplants like myself with an active art, music, food, and cultural scene.
Please write or call Dr. William Wilcox or Dr. Hong Li if you or one of your clinical genetics residents may be interested.
