2013-2014 Genomics in Medicine Lecture Series Play

This eight-lecture series by top experts in oncology and genomics will enhance health-care professionals' understanding of the intersection between genomics and medicine. The series is sponsored by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), in collaboration with Suburban Hospital and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Each lecture takes place at Suburban Hospital's lower level auditorium at 8600 Old Georgetown Road in Bethesda, Md. All are welcome to the hour-long lectures, which begin at 8 a.m. on the first Friday of the month. (Note: The June 28 lecture will start at noon. Lectures are not scheduled for July and August.) Advanced registration is not required; however, those requesting continuing medical education (CME) credits are asked to sign in. More: http://www.genome.gov/27553517

Council (NACHGR) February 2014 Play

The National Advisory Council for Human Genome Research (NACHGR) advises the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), on genetics, genomic research, training and programs related to the human genome initiative. NACHGR performs second-level peer review for grant applications, and determines the program priorities for NHGRI and the goals for the government's efforts in the International Human Genome Project (HGP).

NACHGR meets three times a year. The Ethical, Legal and Social Implications (ELSI) Research Advisors (ERA), a working group of NACHGR, provides advice and guidance to NHGRI on the ethical, legal and social implications of genomic research.

What's a Gene? Play

In 1909, Danish botanist Wilhelm Johannsen coined the word "gene" to describe Mendelian units of heredity. As researchers learned more, they began to define genes as a segment of a DNA molecule that contains information for making a protein or, sometimes, an RNA molecule. The term continues to evolve as scientists learn about the complexities of molecular interactions. Listen to some well-known scientists respond to the question, "What's a gene?"
