CSER consortium research, including oral platform presentations, posters, and scientific session presentations, will be featured at the American College of Medical Genetics 2018 Annual Meeting. This annual meeting is an educational and networking event for the rapidly advancing field of medical genomics and its integration into healthcare, and will feature topics on both the current and future practice of genomics in healthcare. The ACMG 2018 annual meeting will run from April 10 to 14, 2018, in Charlotte, North Carolina.
To aid all ACMG 2018 attendees, numerous resources are available, such as an events schedule. The CSER Twitter account will also be tweeting about ACMG 2018, so feel free to mention @hail_CSER to connect.
A full list of CSER work at ACMG 2018 can be found online here. Below is a sampling of CSER projects that will be showcased at ACMG 2018:
Thursday, April 12 2018
Posters. Time: 10:00am - 11:30am. Location: Exhibit Halls BC, Charlotte Convention Center
- A multitude of CSER Phase 1 (CSER1) and CSER Phase 2 (CSER2) posters will be presented. Ellen Howerton (NHGRI) will present a poster summarizing achievements from CSER1 (abstract #247), Jonathan Berg (CSER2 project: NCGenes2) will present a poster introducing CSER2 (abstract #573) and Lucia Hindorff (NHGRI) will present results from a CSER1-wide project analyzing the prevalence, costs, and patient perspectives of returning secondary findings (abstract #219).
- Kalotina Machini (CSER1 project: MedSeq) will summarize results and experiences from the completed CSER1 MedSeq project. Some highlights include reflection on the initial analysis and reanalysis of 100 MedSeq genomes (50 healthy individuals and 50 with a cardiomyopathy diagnosis), and the associated challenges and lessons learned (abstract #653).
- Jacqueline Odgis (CSER2 project: NYCKidSeq) will introduce the CSER2 NYCKidSeq project out of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mt Sinai CSER grant (poster #381). More information about NYCKidSeq can be found on their website.
Friday, April 13 2018
Posters. Time: 10:30am - 12:00pm. Location: Exhibit Halls BC, Charlotte Convention Center
- Malia Fullerton (CSER1 project: NextMedicine) will present results from a set of interviews with participants investigating family communication practices in response to receiving negative, uncertain, or positive genomic findings (abstract #590)
Saturday, April 14 2018
Scientific Concurrent Session. Genomic-Based Population Screening of Adults: If? When? How? Time: 8:00am - 10:00am. Location: Richardson Ballroom BC
- Two CSER1 investigators, James Evans (CSER1 project: NCGenes1) and David Veenstra (CSER1 project: NextMedicine) will be presenting thoughts and experiences on what is known and what needs to be known before genomic screening of entire populations can begin.
