Genomic medicine can tailor new preventive approaches from disease detection to predicting the most effective medication for pain, cardiology or mental health.
While this fast-paced field has far-reaching potential, not all DNA promises live up to their hype. It can be difficult to separate the important innovations from the noise.
In this online seminar, Allison Hazell, MSc, CCGC, CGC, Director of Genetics at Medcan, will distinguish between trusted genomic technologies – and those areas to consider with caution. She will also share which new options in this ever-developing field are top of mind with the Medcan Genetics team.
The seminar will touch upon the following three topics and include 15 minutes to answer seminar participants’ questions, which can be submitted online throughout the presentation.
• Hereditary cancer genetic testing
• Liquid biopsy (early detection for circulating cancer cells)
