Kursinhalt

Explore the benefits of a community approach to genomic medicine and research

Translational research has shown the benefits of using a community-focussed approach to healthcare. This course shares these benefits and raises awareness of community genetics as a field of medicine. Amish communities and families affected by inherited disorders are given as an example.

On this course, you will explore the skills needed for translational research work and understand the meaning of community genetics. You will also learn the value of whole genome sequencing in the community context and the importance of community-specific medical research to patients.

This course is for research teams, clinicians and allied health and special educational needs workers and diagnostic facilities that work with families affected by inherited diseases.
