Dr. Campbell, assistant director for the Iowa Institute of Human Genetics (IIHG), will lecture. The IIHG is a statewide resource to promote clinical care, research, and education that focuses on the medical and scientific advances around the human genome. Her lecture will highlight how new technologies are making it easier to know more about your entire genetic blueprint and your genetic risks for medical problems. In fact, reading your genes could someday become as common as getting an X-ray, leading to diagnoses and treatments tailored just for you. Whole genome sequencing offers much promise, but it also raises many questions. Learn how researchers at the Iowa Institute of Human Genetics are helping shape the future of personalized medicine and what that means for you. Campbell will give a separate lecture to a combined audience of students enrolled in Cellular and Molecular Biology and Foundations: Cellular Biology.
