Population Genetics in an Era of Genomic Health
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.
Individuals who need sign language interpreting and/or other reasonable accommodations to participate in this event should contact Dr. Jamil Scott, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or the Federal Relay (1-800-877-8339).
Dr. Kenny is the founding director of the Institute for Genomic Health and an associate professor of Medicine and Genetics at the Ichan School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. She is principal investigator of six large international programs focused on genomic research, medicine, and health, and is a scientific advisor to many genomic and genomic medicine initiatives in government, non-profit, and industry arenas.
