Gastrointestinal Cancer Genetics Program

From the Director

Welcome to our Gastrointestinal Cancer Genetics Program, and thank you for visiting our website.  At Penn Medicine our Gastrointestinal Cancer Genetics Program cares for patients and families who either have or are at risk of having hereditary gastrointestinal cancer or polyposis syndromes.

We serve patients in the Philadelphia area, throughout the mid-Atlantic and nationwide. Our team of physicians, genetic counselors, research personnel, and administrators is dedicated to providing comprehensive, compassionate, and state-of-the-art care to all patients involved in our program.  I hope that you will find that our program not only meets, but also exceeds your needs and expectations. 

If you are interested in learning more about any of the opportunities in the Gastrointestinal Cancer Genetics Program, please contact us at GIGenetics@uphs.upenn.edu or 215-349-8222.  Again, thank you for taking the time to visit our program.
