Date:3/30/2009

Margarita Sifuentes Saenz, MD, a Medical Genetics Fellow at The Children's Hospital in Denver, CO was honored as the 2009-2010 recipient of the Genzyme/American College of Medical Genetics Foundation (ACMGF) Clinical Genetics Fellowship in Biochemical Genetics at the ACMG 2009 Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting in Tampa, FL.

The objective of the Genzyme/ACMGF Award is to support a national fellowship program to encourage the recruitment and training of clinicians in the field of clinical biochemical genetics and especially in the diagnosis, management and treatment of individuals with metabolic diseases. This award grants $75,000 per year to a recipient selected by the ACMG Foundation through a competitive process and will provide for the sponsorship of a trainee's first year of fellowship following residency in a genetics fellowship on biochemical genetic diseases.

"The Genzyme/ACMGF Clinical Genetics Fellowship in Biochemical Genetics is especially important today as we work together to increase the genetics workforce and to advance education, research and standards of practice in medical genetics in the United States in order to improve health and save lives," said R. Rodney Howell, MD, FACMG, president of the ACMGF.
