The Genetics Unit
Detection of a genetic disease in a family begins with the identification of a syndrome in the child who is born with the disorder. Pediatric genetics is a leading and developing field, since children hold the key for disease recurrence in the family. The Genetics Unit at Schneider Children’s is part of the Raphael Recanati Genetics Institute at Rabin Medical Center.
