HOT (Human Origins Today) Topic - Building a Community: Sharing Knowledge of Human Genetic Variation for Precision Medicine

Is Free: 
Free; no advance reservation or ticket required.
April 26, 2019 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Location: One Species, Worldwide Theater; Hall of Human Origins

Dr. Erin Ramos, an epidemiologist and expert in public health genetics from the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), will introduce the Clinical Genome Resource (ClinGen): a consortium of more than 750 clinicians and scientists from 20 countries who are building a central resource that classifies the clinical relevance of genes and variants for use in precision medicine and research. She will lead a discussion on how this community is leveraging genetic variation data for precision medicine. This event is part of NHGRI’s celebration of the 2019 National DNA Day.
