The Nordic Society of Human Genetics and Precision Medicine will kick off our webinar series on Monday, 9 November 2020, 15:00-16:15 CET, with a seminar by NSHG-PM President Kári Stefánsson of deCODE genetics titled, “Human diversity in the context of genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics.”

The webinar is open to all NSHG-PM members, but registration will be required (Reserve your spot now!).

The deCODE multi-omics approach was recently used to find a gene variant that affects risk of several autoimmune disorders (see NSHG-PM news), and in this lecture Stefánsson will also discuss new multi-omics data in Alzheimer’s disease.

Following the talk, Stefánsson will discuss the strategy of combining large sets of protein, RNA transcript, and genomic data with a panel including Paul Franks of Lund University, Mark Daly of the Institute of Molecular Medicine FIMM, Søren Brunak of the University of Copenhagen, and Ole Andreassen of the University of Oslo.

If you are not already a member, join the Society now to access this series, receive research news, and participate in a growing community of Nordic researchers and their colleagues in related fields. If you are already a member but have not paid membership dues since the free period ended, please renew your commitment to building Nordic collaborative research for precision medicine!
