Dr. Sherman's more recent research identifies gene-environment interactions associated with the causes and consequences of trisomy 21 and meiotic recombination. 

Esteemed as a genetic epidemiologist, Dr. Sherman has published 175 articles and nearly 9,500 citations relating to clinical research and therapeutic interventions for genetic disorders. Her specialization areas include:

  • Genetic causes of intellectual and developmental disorders
Nondisjunction of human chromosomes
  • Primary ovarian insufficiency

  • Genetic mapping of complex traits
Fragile X syndrome
  • Down syndrome

She recently published a compelling article, titled: "Genome-Wide Association Study of Meiotic Recombination Phenotypes."

Amidst Trisomy Awareness Month, Dr. Sherman is teaming up with EGL Genetics and the Trisomy 18 Foundation for an exciting live broadcast. Please see below for additional details.
