Different segments of society face unique medical concerns. Genetic diseases are one of the most striking examples of this. The Genetics Institute at Soroka is tackling these often life-threatening challenges headon. Using best practice techniques in carrier testing, clinical and prenatal diagnosis, and genetic counseling, Soroka is making the Negev a healthier place to live for people from every walk of life.
Dr. Ohad Birk is the Head of the Genetics Institute, Soroka Medical Center, with the Morris Kahn Laboratory of Human Genetics, and Head of Israel’s National Research Center for Rare/Orphan Diseases. He is a leading world figure in the field of Genetics, and has made important discoveries in Sephardic Genetics in particular.
