Martin, the Donita B. Sullivan Research Professor in Pediatrics, is a professor of pediatrics and of human genetics. Her research focuses on the genetic basis of neural development and disorders of human development.

  • Karen McLean, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology
  • Rajesh Rao, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor of ophthalmology, visual sciences and pathology

The symposium is free and open to all Michigan Medicine employees and the general public.

Coffee and networking will begin at 8 a.m., with talks commencing at 8:30 a.m. A Q&A session and brief break will follow each presentation.
