Description:

Many neurologic disease have genetic underpinnings. These include rare diseases with mongenic inheritance or more common disorders associated with genetic risk factors. As the availabilty of genetic data moves into clinical care it will be essential for clinicians and researchers to understand and interpret. In this SIG, we will explore understand genetic variation and how this relates to clinical care.

Objective(s):

  • Appreciate the importance of sharing genetic variants through research and clinical collaboration.

  • Understand how to interpret variants of unknown signifigance on genetic test results.

  • Learn how high througput cell based approaches can offer supportive evidence to genetic testing.
