Dr. Gornick’s expertise is in cancer genetics, with a focus on using quantitative methods to better understand the genome. Her research interests are in translational medicine, specifically dealing with issues around effective communication and education for both patients and healthcare providers about the benefits and limitations of using genomic data – including genetic test results – to inform treatment options. A key component of her research involves exploring best practices for integrating genomic sequencing information into clinical practice. Much of her work has been part of a larger study at the U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Michigan Oncology Sequencing Center (MIONCOSEQ) project.
