Gilad Evrony & Christine Beck
The first annual Duke Precision Genomics Collaboratory Scientific Retreat is a day-long retreat at the NC Biotechnology Center in RTP. Our keynote speakers will be Gilad Evrony from the Center for Human Genetics and Genomics at New York University and Christine Beck from the University of Connecticut Health Center and The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine. Dr. Evrony uses genomics to study brain development in humans. His lab also develops genomics technologies that can be rapidly and reliably employed in clinical medicine. Dr. Beck uses genomics, bioinformatics and molecular biological techniques to investigate the ways in which repetitive DNA elements, such as transposons, affect human genomes. Along with our two keynote speakers, the program will include oral presentations by trainees and junior faculty, poster session, catered lunch, and closing social hour.
