Drs. Krantz and Spinner were also the subject of a recent Time magazine article that highlighted their work examining the ethical issues associated with the knowledge gene sequencing brings.

“By the end of this decade, we anticipate that genomic sequencing will be readily available for the diagnosis of pediatric disorders,” Dr. Krantz has said. “Our goal is to help make the information-sharing process systematic, thoughtful, and sensitive to the needs and desires of patients and families.”
