Clinical and Research Background

Dr. Kennedy’s research focuses on developing and using high-accuracy sequencing methods to detect low-frequency somatic mutations. He is one of the primary developers of Duplex Sequencing, which increases the accuracy of these platforms by >10,000-fold. He is using this new technology to study the accumulation of mutations (in both the nuclear and mitochondrial genomes) during aging in a variety of disease contexts.
