Science for all seasons: What will it take to make clinical genomics part of everyday medicine?

The first human genome cost $2.7 billion and took nearly 20 years to complete. Labs around the world now sequence genomes everyday for a fraction of the time and cost. Clinical geneticist Heidi Rehm will discuss how researchers and clinicians are working together to leverage all of those data to change the lives of millions of patients and find the causes for some of the rarest diseases.

This lecture is presented in memory of Eliana Hechter and is supported by the Eliana Hechter Memorial Fund.
