M. Katharine (Katie) Rudd, PhD, is Assistant Professor in the Department of Human Genetics at Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Rudd is a member of the Cancer Genetics and Epigenetics Research Program at Winship.


Dr. Rudd earned her PhD in genetics from Case Western Reserve University. After obtaining her PhD, Dr. Rudd completed a fellowship in medical genetics from the University of Washington.


Dr. Rudd's research focuses on genomic variation at the chromosome level, and her lab investigates the mechanisms of DNA breakage and repair that generate deletions, duplications, translocations, and more complex chromosome rearrangements. She also studies the impact of chromosome rearrangements on nearby genes and chromatin environments. Her lab's goal is to unravel the mechanisms and epigenetic effects of human chromosome rearrangements.
