There are events that define each of our generations such as, the first man to take flight, landing on the moon, and even electric cars. Another such defining point is that of the race to solve the human genome. Eric Green M.D., Ph.D. has been at the forefront of the human genomics age, and currently serves as the Director of the National Human Genome Research Institute.
It is hard to believe that the human genome project ended just 12 years ago, but since then great strides have been made in science. Join us to hear Dr. Green discuss his experiences on the front lines of this groundbreaking era at this year’s Ewing Halsell distinguished lectureship, Tuesday January 13th at 5pm, Holly Auditorium, Register HERE. You can get a taste of Dr. Green’s thoughts on this topic in his recent Nature article, “Charting a course for genomic medicine from base pairs to bedside”.
