Revolution of Genetic Tools and the Impact on Neurology

Event Time: Tuesday April 29, 2014 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Topic(s): General Neurology, Research Methodology, Education, and History
Director(s): Petra Kaufmann MD, FAAN, Mark Mehler MD, FAAN
Description: This program will provide an integrative journey through the evolving revolution in molecular genetics and associated technologies and their immediate and more long-term applications, including a broad perspective on the promise genomic medicine holds, an introduction into the spectrum of genomic information that can be interrogated, different perspectives on the ethical challenges that will increasingly arise, and the practical perspective of a neurologist using such evolving genomic information. This will be followed by a panel discussion with audience participation.
Completion Message: Participants should be more familiar with novel genetic tools, with the potential benefits and limitations of using the resulting datasets in neurological diagnosis, and with some of the associated ethical and practical issues.
