The second annual Precision Genomics Collaboratory Scientific Retreat will be a day-long retreat in the Trent Semans Center on February 24, 2023. Our keynote speaks are Rick Myers, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer and President Emeritus of the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology, and Amy Sturm, MS, CGC, Director of Population Health Genomics at 23andMe. Rick Myers, PhD, studies the human genome to understand how changes in gene expression contribute to human health and disease, as well as to basic biological processes. Myers's group develops and applies innovative technologies and high-throughput next-generation sequencing technology to identify, characterize and understand gene regulatory systems. Amy Sturm, MS CGC, has 20 years of experience in leadership, clinical care, research, program development, and implementation in population genomic screening, cardiovascular genetics and genomics, and digital health technologies. At 23andMe, she works with the product team to look for ways to bring 23andMe's vision and commitment to integrating genetic information into clinical care for patients.
