Communication in genetic medicine – TGMI

Ive noticed over the last few weeks that many TGMI blog posts address challenges that specifically related to communication in genetic medicine. I wanted to highlight some of these mentions here, to illustrate that not all issues in genetic medicine are scientific or medical challenges. Sometimes its all about the way we share information with each other Continue reading

Information about Genetic Testing | School of Medicine …

Even with the success of the Human Genome Project, there still isn’t a genetic test for every disease. A disease may run in a family and clearly be inherited, but the gene responsible may not be identified yet. Our team will see if there is a genetic test available for the condition running in your family Continue reading

Continue reading

Genetic Medicine – University of Chicago – Department of …

Yoav Gilad, PhD Chief, Section of Genetic Medicine University of ChicagoDepartment of Medicine The Section of Genetic Medicine was created over 10 years ago to both build research infrastructure in genetics within the Department of Medicine and to focus translational efforts related to genetics. As a result, the Section of Genetic Medicine is shaping the future of precision medicine with very active and successful research programs focused on the quantitative genetics, systems biology and genomics, and bioinformatics and computational biology. The Section provides extremely valuable collaborations with investigators in the Department of Medicine who are seeking to develop new and more powerful ways to identify genetic risk factors for common, complex disorders with almost immediate clinical application Continue reading
