Dr. Orit Dagan-Rosenfeld


Dr. Orit Dagan-Rosenfeld received her BSc in Biology and MSc in Human Genetics & Genetic Counseling from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. She then continued to perform her PhD in our lab, where she worked on identifying causative genes for deafness. As part of her thesis, Orit also studied the different reasons that motivate parents of deaf children to choose genetic testing. After receiving her PhD in 2006, Orit worked as a clinical genetic counselor at Meir Medical Center. In 2015, after moving to the U.S., she joined Stanford University School of Medicine and is currently working in Prof. Michael Snyder’s group as a genetic counselor in research. Her work focuses on analyzing whole genome sequencing data as a part of a longitudinal multi-omics study, as well as pre- and post-genetic counseling for study participants. Orit is also a member of ClinGen’s adult actionability working group.
