Dr. Catherine Brownstein of Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School speaks to Cambridge Healthtech Institute on April 10, 2018. She will be a presenter during the Clinical Genomics track at Bio-IT World Conference & Expo, May 15-17, 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts.
Topics Questions Include:
1) Let’s touch upon your gene discovery work. What determines the disease genes and conditions you study, with an eye on clinical impact?
2) How does research on rare and orphan disease enhance our understanding of medicine overall?
3) While you zoom in on rare diseases for the sake of broader knowledge, you also look broadly or globally to answer local questions, liaising between academia and industry, and partnering with clinicians with a shared goal of enhancing patient care. What do both the research and clinical sides need to contribute to the process, and what challenges still need to be ironed out?
