学友会セミナー:2018年6月4日

開催日時: 2018年6月4日 13:00 ~ 14:00
開催場所: 病院棟8階北会議室
講師: Robert L. Nussbaum
所属: Chief Medical Officer, Invitae Corporation Volunteer Clinical Faculty, Department of Medicine, UCSF
演題: Integrating Genetics into Mainstream Medical Practice
概要:

Establishing clinical genomics within routine medical practice has been challenging over the last several decades. A major barrier has been access to genetic testing due to the high cost and inconsistent availability of appropriate tests across clinical specialties. This problem was further compounded by insufficient understanding of genotype–phenotype correlations and genomic variation among populations worldwide, the availability of only non-scalable and expensive technologies, and critically, underappreciation of the clinical utility of genomic information. With the tremendous growth in medical knowledge and the revolution in sequencing technology that has brought faster and far less expensive sequencing within our reach, we have now reached a point at which we are successfully breaking through these barriers to make clinical genomics more accessible and substantively impactful. In this talk, I will describe recent trends that are firmly establishing clinical genomics as a fundamental field of medicine that will benefit all clinical specialties and countless individual lives with the potential to influence healthcare worldwide.
