Allen Bale, MD, is a clinical geneticist who has spent nearly three decades investigating cancer predisposition syndromes, which occur when a person inherits one or more genes that predispose him or her to cancer. For example, one of the better-known genes that can be inherited with a mutation is the BRCA1 gene. A mutation in this gene increases the risk that a person will develop breast cancer. 

Dr. Bale also oversees clinical genome sequencing at the Yale Center for Genome Analysis. His research replies on the latest “DNA sequencing technology for the discovery of new human disease genes,” Dr. Bale says. 

He has collaborated on many research projects, including with the Hospital General de Mexico on hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. Dr. Bale is a professor of genetics at Yale School of Medicine.
