Voyager Lecture Series:
The Voyager Lecture Series–Evenings to Inspire Curiosity & Wonder In our sixth season. We’ve expanded our wildly popular series to include new guest speakers who will entertain us with thoughtful and exciting stories ranging from the mysteries of pre-recorded history to mysteries of the cosmos.
Join us as Dr. Haslem walks us through the HeridiGene Research happening now at Intermountain Hospital and beyond. Researchers are hoping HeridiGene Research uncovers new understanding about who’s at risk for what conditions, which medications may work in some patients and not others, and contribute to a greater understanding in overall human biology. What is HerediGene? HerediGene Study is a research study mapping the genomes of hundreds of thousands of patients and participants across the intermountain west. Anyone can enroll by consenting at HerediGene.org and donating a small amount of blood at an Intermountain Healthcare hospital or clinic.
