M. Elizabeth Ross, MD, PhD
Weill Cornell Medicine
Dr. Ross is Vice President of the ANA and Director of the Center for Neurogenetics (CNG) at Weill Cornell Medicine. The CNG supports research into the genetic causes and treatment of neurological disorders in children and adults, encompassing both basic science and clinical arms, and operates the biobank for the neurological and neuroscience community at Weill Cornell. Her own research group focuses on finding gene mutations associated with monogenic and complex genetic disorders toward investigation of how these genes direct building the brain and serve its function during development and aging. Studies are approached from a basic science perspective, using biochemical, cell biological and mouse genetic tools and engage clinical genetics as a guide to discovery.
