Einstein in the Media

The Wall Street Journal interviews Harry Ostrer, M.D., about an historic and unanimous Supreme Court ruling that determined human genes cannot be patented. Dr. Ostrer, one of the original plaintiffs in the case that centered on the BRCA1 and 2 genes, notes that the decision should help expand access to genetic testing and help reduce costs considerably. Dr. Ostrer is professor of pathology, of genetics and of pediatrics at Einstein and director of genetic and genomic testing at Montefiore Medical Center.
