Brad Rolf is a clinical genetic counselor who is working with Dr. Dorschner and the NCGL team on a research project aimed at identifying genetic contributions to risk for dementia and cognitive impairment. He earned his masters of genetic counseling at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston. His interest in adult-onset genetic conditions brought him to the Adult Genetic Medicine Clinic at the University of Washington where he worked with adult patients affected by a wide array of genetic conditions.
With the recent rise in available genetic testing has come the challenge of interpreting human genetic variation. One of Brad’s primary clinical interests lies in genetic variant interpretation and classification. Brad is using his knowledge of genetics as well as a number of other resources to classify genetic variants identified by the NCGL.
