Ada Hamosh and Nara Sobreira have dedicated their careers to finding the genetic culprits of rare conditions. Over the years, finding answers for people with some of the most perplexing genetic conditions has tested these leading scientists’ resolve, but their combined ingenuity and experience has paid off with answers for hundreds of families. To help move the field forward, they developed an online tool that is used around the globe to speed the discovery process and connect the work of genetic investigators.
