Genomic Medicine for Reproductive, Prenatal and Neonatal Health

prenatal genomeOn April 16-17, 2018, the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of CHild Health and Human Development (NICHD) are hosting a joint workshop  - Genomic Medicine for Reproductive, Prenatal and Neonatal Health  - at 6710B Rockledge Drive in Bethesda, Maryland.

Workshop Questions to Consider:

  1. What current genomic technologies are ready for implementation in reproductive, prenatal, & neonatal health?
  2. What are the ethical, legal, & social implications of genomic medicine implementation in reproductive, prenatal, & neonatal health?
  3. What are the challenges to implementing genomic medicine in reproductive, prenatal, & neonatal health?
