In this virtual lecture, Dr. Eimear Kenny will illustrate how her research focuses on accelerating the integration of genomics into clinical care, especially in diverse and underserved populations. As a statistical and population geneticist, she leads a multidisciplinary team of geneticists, computer scientists, clinicians, and other medical professionals working on problems at the interface of artificial intelligence, large-scale genomics, and medicine.

This lecture is part of the Genomics and Health Disparities Lecture Series, a collaborative effort focused on exploring the role of genomics in achieving health equity. The lecture will be recorded and made available for later viewing on the lecture series website.
