Netgene welcomes Professor Yong-Hui Jiang from Yale Medical School to talk about his work on genomics of rare and undiagnosed diseases. In addition to his appointments in the departments of Genetics, Pediatrics and Neuroscience, Professor Jiang serves at the Chief of Medical Genetics at Yale.
Genomic approach to rare and undiagnosed diseases: success, opportunity, and challenge
Yong-Hui Jiang, MD, PhD, FACP
Professor of Genetics, Pediatrics, and Neuroscience,
Chief of Medical Genetics
Yale School of Medicine
Tuesday, April 27, 12-1pm
Zoom ID: 921 6987 5921
About the speaker: Professor Jiang is a physician scientist active both in basic research and clinical practice. His research interests are to 1) uncover the genetic and epigenetic bases of neurodevelopmental disorders or rare diseases with neurodevelopmental defects; 2) model genetic diseases using human patients derived cellular models and genetic mutant mice; 3) understand the circuit and molecular mechanisms underlying autism spectrum disorder; 4) develop novel molecular and epigenetic targeted therapies for genetic and epigenetic diseases. His clinical expertise is on clinical and biochemical genetics of rare and undiagnosed diseases in children and adult.
About the Genetics Seminar: The seminar is organized by the Genomics and Personalized Medicine Student Interest Group (Netgene) at Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine.
