Clinical genomics

Efficiently translating genomic research into the clinic is one of the most important steps in the development of the field. The clinic is where we will see things come to fruition.

Largest Genetic Study for POAG in African-Americans

Dr Joan O’Brien, chair of the University of Pennsylvania’s Department of Ophthalmology, Scheie Eye Institute, Philadelphia, and primary investigator of POAAGG, joins our panel of experts on April 10th to discuss bias in genetic studies and what is being done to remove it.

Clinicians Fighting Cancer

Researchers have observed that the number and size of tiny structures that exist inside cells, called centrioles, are increased in the most aggressive subtypes of cancer.

Clinical Genomics 101: Biological Samples

There are a number of different ways in which genetic material can be collected and the choice of which technique is used is typically decided by a variety of factors. We discuss the different techniques available.

Stem Cell Transplants Can Treat MS

A new clinical trial indicates that stem cell transplants can prevent the progression of MS. The transplants also helped to improve the symptoms of patients.
