Dr. Eimear Kenny, PhD, is Founding Director of the Center for Genomic Health, and Associate Professor of Medicine and Genetics at Mount Sinai. She is a statistical and population geneticist. She leads a multidisciplinary team of geneticists, computer scientists, clinicians, and other medical professionals, working on problems at the interface of computational genomics and medicine. Her goal is to accelerate the integration of genomics into clinical care, particularly in diverse and underserved populations. She is Principal Investigator in multiple NIH-funded consortia focused on genomic research, medicine and health, including NHGRI Clinical Sequencing Evidence-based Research, NHGRI Genome Sequencing Project, and NHLBI Trans-omics in Precision Medicine.
She is a scientific advisor to many genomic and genomic medicine initiatives in government, non-profit and industry arenas. She has published over 80 papers in leading journals like Science, Nature, Nature Genetics, NEJM, and her work has been featured by the New York Times, Australian Broadcasting Company and at the Smithsonian Human Genome Exhibit in Washington DC. She has a BA in Biochemistry from Trinity College Dublin, a PhD in computational genomics from Rockefeller University, and did her postdoctoral training in population genomics at Stanford University.
