HGP 30th Anniversary Video Testimonials

Eli Roberson

Eli Roberson, Assistant Professor of Genomics and Medicine at Washington University School of Medicine, remembers attending a talk in high school where someone discussed what would happen once the Human Genome Project (HGP) was complete. This sparked his interest in human genetics because he believed once we had this "map", we would be able to apply it to different areas of medicine.
