Episode 95 32 min 16 sec Personalized Medicine: Treatments Tailored to Your Unique Genetic Profile
Assoc Prof Melissa Southey heads a laboratory that conducts population-based studies of the genetic epidemiology of breast, pediatric, prostate and colorectal cancer. Her research will provide definitive information about cancer susceptibility genes and may identify further susceptibility genes that impact on clinical genetics services worldwide. This will have immediate and significant impact on the clinical management of all individuals and families with early-onset and miltiple-cases of cancer and may provide additional target information for future treatment strategies and drug development.
Prof Dan Roden is Assistant Vice-Chancellor for Personalized Medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Dan is also Professor of Medicine and Pharmacology and the William Stokes Professor of Experimental Therapeutics at Vanderbilt University.
Prof Roden's research specialization is the mechanisms and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias.
