UNT Transdisciplinary Conference on Ancestral Genomics
& African-American Disease Susceptibilities:
a Model for Underrepresented Minorities
We are pleased to announce the opening of registration and abstract submission for the April 2020 UNT Transdisciplinary Conference on Ancestral Genomics & African-American Disease Susceptibilities. This two day Conference will bring together pioneers in the fields of ancestral genomics, epidemiology and related fields. Its focus will be on developing innovative approaches to applying genomic medicine to African-Americans and other non-European ethnic populations. This meeting will also bring together specialists from the National Library of Medicine, the Cooperative Human Tissue Network and the National Center for Biotechnology Information to conduct workshops on a range of issues, including the authentication of ancestral cell lines, efforts to bringing to bioinformatics data-gathering, and effective methods for recruiting underrepresented populations to participate in medical studies.
This Conference will seek out ways to improve the relevance of Genomics and the performance of the Precision medicine model when applied to minority communities, focusing on these areas of interest:
African-American Health Disparities
Nutrition in an Ethnically Diverse Society
