Collexis Research Profiles
Einstein Research Profiles (ERP) is one of the innovative technologies to create collaborative bridges within and across the entire bench-to-bedside-to-population spectrum of research. The ERP website has been developed in partnership with Collexis to give investigators easy access to PubMed publications, coauthor networks, information about NIH grants, and research networks.

Media Coverage

American Medical News interviews Robert Marion, M.D., about prenatal whole genome sequencing, which can identify an unborn child’s risk of developing chronic diseases. Because this new test will provide detailed information on mutations of 20,000 to 25,000 genes, some of which will not be significant, Dr. Marion stresses the importance of preparing healthcare professionals to counsel expectant parents about the results. Dr. Marion is director of Einstein’s Children's Evaluation and Rehabilitation Center and chief of developmental medicine at Einstein and Montefiore Medical Center.

ABCNews.com interviews Dr. Robert Marion about surprising new research that finds drinking alcohol in moderation during pregnancy is safe.
