The American Society of Human Genetics 2014 Meeting | San Diego, CA | October 18-22
Building Bridges:A Joint ASHG/ESHG Session
            Evolving Uncertainties in Genomic Medicine
Tuesday, October 21, 8:30 am - 10:00 am
Uncertainty is an inherent part of genomic medicine. Uncertainty pervades the associations of genes to phenotypes, the pathogenicity of variants, the role of modifiers and environment in gene penetrance and expressivity, the natural history of genetic disease, and the efficacy and iatrogenic effects of treatments for these diseases. Speakers, who will each focus on a different aspect of genomic uncertainty, will include:
History of Uncertainty in Genomic Medicine Reed Pyeritz, Univ. of Pennsylvania
Management of Uncertainty in Assigning Pathogenicity to Variants Les Biesecker, National Institutional of Health
Conceptualizing and Communicating Uncertainty: State of the Science Paul Han, Maine Med. Ctr. Res. Inst
Barbara Biesecker,National Institutes of Health
How do Patients Manage the Ambiguity and Complexity of NGS? Aad Tibben, Leiden Univ. Med. Ctr.
