SPEAKER AND AUTHOR DISCLOSURES
In accordance with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education
through the joint sponsorship of the American College of Medical Genetics and
Genomics (ACMG) and ASHG, all faculty, speakers and moderators must disclose
the existence of any financial interest and/or other relationship(s) they might have with
the manufacturer(s) or provider(s) of any commercial product(s) or service(s) to be
discussed during their presentation: receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property
rights, consulting fee, honoraria, ownership interest (e.g., stocks, stock options or
other ownership interest, excluding diversified mutual funds), or other financial benefit.
Financial benefits are usually associated with roles such as employment, management
position, independent contractor (including contracted research), consulting,
speaking and teaching, membership on advisory committees or review panels, board
membership, and other activities for which remuneration is received or expected.
If members of the ASHG 2012 Program Committee indicated a relationship which
could be perceived by some as a real or apparent conflict of interest in planning the
program, the committee member refrained from discussion. The following presenters
have indicated a relationship that within the context of their presentation could be
perceived by some as a real or apparent conflict of interest but do not consider that
it will influence their presentation. The disclosures have been reviewed and conflict of
interest resolved or managed. The number following each company name represents
the specific relationship from the list below.
