Voyager Lecture Series:

Genome Sequencing: A Biological Jigsaw Puzzle

With with Dr. Derrick Haslem

 

Have you met the family genes? A portion of the population will experience illness due to predictable bits of their own genetic code. The new Intermountain Precision Health and Genomics population study known as “HerediGene” is working to get half a million people to submit their blood for the creation a model for who might fall ill for genetic reasons.

“The HerediGene: Population Study is the largest population study ever attempted from a single population,” said Lincoln Nadauld, MD, PhD, Vice President of Intermountain Precision Health & Genomics, “Already in the first 10,000 of genomes analyzed, we’ve discovered hundreds of disease-causing genes. The HerediGene: Population Study is an exciting and ambitious initiative that will be world-changing.”

Dr. Derrick Haslem, one of the scientists working on the HerediGene initiative, will give a detailed lecture on the program, and what we know about the link between human genetics and illness.

Derrick Haslem, MD Associate Medical Director of Oncology
Dr. Derrick Haslem is the Associate Medical Director of Oncology at Intermountain, a board-certified specialist in Medical Oncology with expertise in targeted therapy, genomics, and breast cancer. He provides care for cancer patients at Intermountain Healthcare Cancer Centers in St. George, Murray and Logan as well as via telehealth at Sevier, Cassia, Teton Valley, Idaho, Uintah Basin and Star Valley, Wyoming. Dr. Derrick Haslem has been a key leader in expanding cancer services to more rural populations by providing tele-oncology services. This program brings high-quality cancer care close to home and reduces complexity, cost, and travel for patients living outside and far away from traditional large cancer centers.

Tickets are $15. The lecture will take place at 7:30pm on January 12th..
