Medical geneticists are specially trained in the diagnosis and management of inherited or genetically influenced heath issues (genetic disorders). They screen for inherited conditions and diseases derived from altered DNA to diagnose haemophilia, cystic fibrosis, sickle cell disease, Alzheimer’s disease and also to find any problems like hemoglobinopathies, neural tube defects, genetic disorders in new born and even on unborn babies. Medical geneticists make use of radiologic, cytogenic and biochemical tests. A medical geneticist is a part of a medical team with genetic counsellors, genetic nurses, and other medical specialists to develop interventions to minimize the risk and impact of genetic disorders. Medical geneticists can work for hospitals, research institutes, and pharmaceutical companies.
