Peter J. McGuire, MB BCh, of Mount Sinai Medical Center, New York was honored as the 2008-2009 recipient of the Genzyme/ACMGF Clinical Genetics Fellowship in Biochemical Genetics at the ACMG 2008 Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting in Phoenix, AZ.
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 and will provide for the sponsorship of a trainees 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 at this point in history 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. said R. Rodney Howell, MD, FACMG, president of the ACMGF.
