Toward Translational Genomics: From Bench to Bedside

Our 8th annual symposium will cover the progress that has been made in translational genomics, which aims to improve human health by building on discoveries made through genetics research and applying them in the clinical setting. The keynote speakers are Manolis Kellis, PhD, and Christopher O'Donnell, MD, MPH. Additional speakers include Alexis Battle, PhD; Andrew Jaffe, PhD; Ian Maze, PhDKristen Brennand, PhD; Noura Abul-Husn, MD, PhD; Ben Voight, PhD; Lea Davis, PhD; and Todd Lencz, PhD

To RSVP, please email catherine.morris@mssm.edu.

This symposium has been made possible thanks to a generous gift from Dr. Karen Davis and the Elkins Foundation.
