FDA Office of Minority Health Lecture Series:  “Precision Cardiovascular Medicine for Multi-ethnic Populations”

Date: Thursday, February 23, 2017
Time: 11-12 PM
Location: Webinar
In honor of American Heart Month, the FDA Office of Minority Health will host a one hour webinar featuring Dr. Manrai from Harvard University. During this time, Dr. Manrai will update us on his current research on genetic misdiagnoses related to cardiomyopathy using a health disparities framework.
During this webinar you will learn more about::
  • contemporary uses of genetic testing for the inherited heart disease hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM)
  • the consequences of a lack of diverse control sequence data on variant classifications and
  • the value of the current pathogenicity-based scale of rating clinical-grade genetic variation.
Dr. Arjun Manrai
Researcher, Harvard Medical School
Department of Biomedical Informatics
Arjun (Raj) Manrai is a researcher at the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Harvard Medical School. Manrai received his undergraduate degree in Physics from Harvard College and completed his Ph.D. in Bioinformatics and Integrative Genomics under the supervision of Professor Isaac Kohane at the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology. Manrai is broadly interested in the opportunities and challenges of using genomic data in the clinic. His research draws on theoretical and computational developments in statistical genetics, machine learning, and scientific reproducibility to advance the clinical utility of genetic discoveries. His work has been published in the New England Journal of Medicine and JAMA, and featured in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and NPR. Manrai is especially interested in developing quantitative methods and computational resources that translate findings in genomic medicine to benefit underserved communities.
