If you're in Melbourne in September, Professor Sir John Burn (geneticist), lead clinician for the UK National Health Service (North East), genetics lead for the UK National Institute of Health Research, and Deputy Chair of our International Scientific Advisory Committee will be giving the 2013 R Douglas Wright Lecture as part of the MDHS at UniMelb Dean's Lecture Series.

Sir John’s lecture, “The diagnosis, treatment and prevention of genetic disease” will examine how new technologies and an increasing understanding of the genetic determinants of both rare and common disease are starting to turn the noise of the approximately 3 million mostly irrelevant variants predicted to occur in each of us into a useful clinical signal. These signals, uncovered by cheap DNA testing performed in minutes can lead to better direct interventions and dramatic improvements in our health.

The R Douglas Wright Lecture
Tuesday 3 September, 2013
6.00pm – 7.00pm
The Auditorium, Melbourne Brain Centre, Ground Floor
Kenneth Myer Building
30 Royal Parade (corner Genetics Lane)
The University of Melbourne

Admission is free. Bookings are required

A gene called “mindbomb 1″ may be involved in repairing injured cells in the stomach and pancreas, report researchers, who say it may be linked to cancers of those organs.

Earlier this month, Human Variome Project International Ltd (the legal structure that represents our Consortium members) signed a formal Memorandum of Understanding with WHO that sets out the formal relationship between WHO and the Human Variome Project. In essence, the agreement sets out how the two will work together to assist WHO in achieving its goal of providing leadership in global health matters that relate to human genomics, with a particular emphasis on service delivery and safety in low- and middle-income countries.

"Fragile X syndrome is the most common inherited cause of intellectual impairment, formerly termed mental retardation, and is the leading known single-gene cause of autism spectrum disorder. The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that about 1 in 4,000 males and females have the disorder. The condition is caused by a mutation in a single gene, FMR1, found on the X chromosome."
