JAXTAPOSITION: Genetics

NEXT-GEN GENETICS

Wednesday, May 5, 2021
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (ET)

Genetics allows us to target previously unknown pathways for therapy as well as to peer into the very fabric of who we are as human. The growing capabilities in the field promise great benefits, but there are important associated ethical, legal and societal implications to consider as well.

Join JAX for a discussion on the bright future of genetics and the rapid improvements in medical care that lie ahead.

Registration will be posted soon. For questions, contact Advancement Events at advancementevents@jax.org

SPEAKER BIOGRAPHIES

Ed Liu

Edison T. Liu, M.D., President and CEO 

Dr. Liu came to JAX after founding and leading the Genome Institute of Singapore. His scientific research focuses on the functional genomics of human cancers, investigating gene regulation on a genomic scale that modulates cancer biology. His laboratory investigates the expression signatures in breast cancers that define biochemical and genetic perturbations as well as the transcriptional regulation of estrogen receptors. Dr. Liu's work spans cancer biology, genomics, human genetics and molecular epidemiology.
