DNA dialogue – Professor Heidi Rehm, Broad Institute
Join Australian Genomics’ new breakfast seminar series, DNA dialogue.

This month's seminar "Advancing Genomic Medicine through Global Collaboration and Data Sharing" features Professor Heidi Rehm from the Broad Institute (USA).

Supporting genomics in the practice of medicine requires extensive infrastructure, including standards, knowledge bases and global data sharing, as well as a rich interface between research and clinical care as new gene-disease relationships continue to be discovered at a rapid pace. This talk will present community efforts to support clinical genomics including the knowledge curation performed within the Clinical Genome Resource and Gene Curation Coalition, as well as novel gene discovery efforts of the GREGoR consortium and Broad Center for Mendelian Genomics.

With the wealth of genomic expertise internationally, we hope this seminar series will be a forum for members of the genomics community in Australia and beyond to learn of new developments in health genomics and the overseas experience.  

DNA dialogue seminars will be held live via zoom on the last Thursday of each month at 8am (AEST). Registration is open to anyone working in, or impacted by, medical genomics.

May 26, 2022 08:00 AM in Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney
