Marwan Shinawi, MD

Professor of Pediatrics

Washington University in St. Louis (WU)

Special interests are in genomics and genomic disorders, cytogenetic abnormalities, microarray technology, skeletal dysplasia, the genetic basis of autism, and metabolic conditions. I am using reverse genomics to characterize the phenotypes of genomic disorders with special focus on 16p11.2 rearrangements. I am working to develop novel methods for detection of metabolic conditions. I am a co-director of the Women and Infants’ Health Specimen Consortium (WIHSC) and am investigating metabolomics and feto-maternal interaction during pregnancy.
