Working under the supervision of a Senior an HEOR Team member, the role of the Summer 2023 Intern is to assist in multiple aspects of research into how the use of whole genome sequencing (WGS) can drive patient outcomes, and how these findings might influence market considerations. The intern will be responsible for carrying out in-depth market-based research, hypothesis-driven data analysis, as well as presenting research findings at the completion of the internship.

This will be an opportunity to grow your skillset and work at the intersection between market research and the burgeoning field of clinical genomics. Your work in this role will help us understand 1) how access to WGS affects patient journeys and diagnostic odysseys across various demographic groups – including multiple geographic regions, income levels, etc.; and 2) how to address barriers to entry and obstacles to adoption of WGS across these groups. You will coordinate with your supervisor to formulate a rigorous roadmap to address your research questions and construct clearly defined measurement and outcome metrics. Your role is to ensure that this roadmap is executed on schedule and with precision, and to convey your findings in presentation reports.

Science - Minded, Patient - Focused.

At GeneDx, we create, follow, and are informed by cutting-edge science. With over 20 years of expertise in diagnosing rare disorders and diseases, and pioneering work in the identification of new disease-causing genes, our commitment to genetic disease detection, discovery, and diagnosis is based on sound science and is focused on enhancing patient care.

Experts in what matters most.

With hundreds of genetic counselors, MD/PhD scientists, and clinical and molecular genomics specialists on staff, we are the industry’s genetic testing experts and proud of it. We share the same goal as healthcare providers, patients, and families: to provide clear, accurate, and meaningful answers we all can trust.


From sequencing to reporting and beyond, our technical and clinical experts are providing guidance every step of the way:


  • High-quality testing: Our laboratory is CLIA certified and CAP accredited and most of our tests are also New York State approved.
  • Advanced detection: By interrogating genes for complex variants, we can identify the underlying causes of conditions that may otherwise be missed.


  • Thorough analysis: We classify variants according to our custom adaptation of the most recent guidelines. We then leverage our rich internal database for additional interpretation evidence.
  • Customized care: Our experts review all test results and write reports in a clear, concise, and personalized way. We also include information for research studies in specific clinical situations.
  • Impactful discovery: Our researchers continue working to find answers even after testing is complete. Through both internal research efforts and global collaborations, we have identified and published hundreds of new disease-gene relationships and developed novel tools for genomic data analysis. These efforts ultimately deliver more diagnostic findings to individuals.
