ZOOM SEMINAR Polygenic Risk Scores: The Shortest Route from Bench to Bedside


Professor A. Cecile J.W. Janssens

Emory University - Rollins School of Public Health, Atlanta, USA

4th of February 2021, 4pm – 5.30pm CET


Drs. Jean-François Deleuze & François Cambien coordinate the Laboratory of Excellence (LabEx) MEDical GENomics - GENMED. GENMED aims to promote the development of competitive research projects in human diseases both nationally and internationally in the context of Medical Genomics by evaluating, developing and implementing Next Generation Sequencing based technologies and methodologies together with integrated analysis of genomic data. In addition, GENMED is involved in education and training initiatives as well as promoting ethical aspects in order to build structural foundations to implement and develop Medical Genomics in France and beyond.

As part of its missions, GENMED has to date organized three yearly workshops on Medical Genomics involving internationally renowned speakers. Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, GENMED has decided to replace this popular workshop with a number of online seminars. The first 2021 webinar will be presented by Professor Cecile Janssens from Emory University who will discuss the use of polygenic risk scores in Medical Genomics. The format will be an online 1-hour presentation and 30 minutes of questions/discussion under the guidance of a moderator.
