Peter K. Gregersen, MD, Principal Investigator, is head of the Robert S. Boas Center for Genomics and Human Genetics at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research. His research on genes that could explain absolute pitch comes from a life-long interest in music (unfortunately without absolute pitch!) coupled with a career devoted to understanding the genetic contribution to human disease as well as normal human traits such as absolute pitch and related cognitive traits.
Elena Kowalsky, CCRC, Co-Investigator /Study Coordinator, has been part of the absolute pitch investigative team almost from its inception. Elena experiences absolute pitch and is an actively performing musician and teacher.
