I am currently an instructor in medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. I have many interests, though, and invite you to explore my website further.

I have restricted access to my academic portfolio because it contains a lot of sensitive information. If you would like access, please email me at kchristensen@bwh.harvard.edu.



I recently received an NIH K01 Career Development Award to develop skills and conduct research on the cost-effectiveness of integrating whole genome sequencing into the care of healthy adults. It is a 5-year grant which examines the issue by conducting a long-term follow-up of the MedSeq Project and by modeling the costs and consequences.

More immediately, I will be presenting some preliminary findings about the responses of cardiologists to whole genome sequencing at the upcoming annual meeting of the American Society of Human Genetics. I'll be discussing the poster from 2-4PM on Friday, October 21.
