Caitlin Mauer, M.A., M.S., CGC, joined UT Southwestern Medical Center’s Cancer Genetics program in 2012. In addition to managing the Cancer Genetics Clinic at UT Southwestern, she sees patients at risk for hereditary cancer syndromes in multiple clinics around the Dallas metroplex.

Prior to beginning her career, she completed her Master of Science in genetic counseling at Northwestern University in Chicago. In 2016, she also completed her Master of Arts in medical humanities and bioethics from Northwestern University.

She has a passion for working with underserved populations as well as pediatric populations. Her research interests are vast, but she has focused her primary research on analysis of the clinical impact of new genetic testing technologies in the cancer genetics space, as well as patient outcomes (both medically and psychosocially) after the identification of a hereditary cancer gene mutation. She also has an interest in the legal and ethical issues that surround genetic testing.
