Kelly E. Ormond, MS, CGC
Professor (Teaching), Genetics, Stanford
Kelly is Director of the MS in Human Genetics and Genetic Counseling (GC) program and Professor (Teaching) of Genetics at Stanford University. Several of the classes she teaches are open to students outside of the GC program and may be of interest to students who are pre-med or are interested in careers in genetics or ethics in the future. She is a faculty member of the Stanford Center for Biomedical Ethics (SCBE) and her research focuses on the intersection between genetics and ethics, particularly around the translation of new genetic technologies (such as genome sequencing or non-invasive prenatal diagnosis) into clinical practice. She is especially interested in patient decision making, informed consent, and the interface between genetics and disability.
