Keynote – The Path to Preventive Genomics

Robert C. Green, MD, MPH, Professor of Medicine; Director, G2P Research Program; Associate Director for Research, Partners Personalized Medicine, Division of Genetics, Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Broad Institute and Harvard Medical School 

It is now 20 years since the completion of the first draft of the Human Genome Project. While there have been enormous breakthroughs in diagnostics and biotechnology, the promise of using genomics to stratify risk and prevent human disease has not been realized. This presentation will summarize recent data from the MedSeq and BabySeq Projects which are the first randomized trials to assess medical, behavioral and economic impact of comprehensive sequencing in healthy adults and newborn infants, respectively. This presentation will also describe a new vision for clinical utility research in preventive genomics.
