Biography

Romina Ortiz completed her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at Johns Hopkins University in Neuroscience and Molecular Microbiology and Immunology, respectively. Her thesis focused on the interplay between the microbiome and hormones in autoimmune disease. She is a Co-founder of Rare Genomics Institute (RG), COO and VP of Patient Advocacy at RG. In 2016, she was awarded the Patient Advocacy Leadership award by Sanofi Genzyme. She trains volunteers on the topics of Genetics and Sequencing, directs a Patient Advocacy Program in next generation sequencing and research services to undiagnosed and rare disease patients and currently directs a philanthropic program with Illumina called iHope, offering free whole genome sequencing to children in need of a diagnosis. Her goal is to integrate phenotypic medical information with genomic data to identify the genetic cause to disease and accelerate the path to treatment and a cure.
