Georgianne Lee Arnold, MD, FACMG

  • Professor of Pediatrics

Administrative Assistant: Annette Evans

Georgianne Arnold's passion for genetics developed early, after learning about Gregor Mendel in Biology Class. The journey took her to a master’s degree in medical Genetics at Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis, medical school at SUNY Syracuse, residency in Pediatrics at Northwestern University in Chicago, and fellowship in Genetics at University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. She is board certified in Pediatrics, Clinical Genetics and Clinical Biochemical Genetics, and a Fellow of the American College of Medical Genetics. Currently, she is president of the Society for Inherited Metabolic Disorders. She loves working with children and families to diagnose and manage genetic disorders. In addition, she is interested in clinical research in metabolic disease. Currently she is the Clinical Research Director in the Division of Genetic and Genomic Medicine involved in a wide variety of research projects.
