Practical Considerations for Genomic Sequencing Studies in a Low Resource Setting
October 22 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
This talk is part of the National Cancer Institute’s Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences’ Sequencing Strategies for Population and Cancer Epidemiology Studies (SeqSPACE) Webinar Series. Dr. Timothy Rebbeck is a is a Vincent L. Gregory, Jr. Professor of Cancer Prevention and Epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health as well as a Professor of Medical Oncology at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. He leads molecular epidemiology studies of cancer etiology, outcomes, health disparities, and global health. His work has led to an understanding of the genetic and environmental causes of breast, prostate, skin, endometrial and ovarian cancers. He founded and lead international cancer consortia that study risk and outcomes of 1) cancer in BRCA1/BRCA2 mutation carriers, and 2) prostate cancer in men of African descent in North America, the Caribbean, and Africa. Dr. Rebbeck will be presenting on practical considerations for genomic sequencing studies in a low resource setting.
