NIHR Imperial BRC Genetics and Genomics Seminar Series are excited to have the speaker Dr Ernest Turro – Tuesday 13th April 2021 @ 14:00 hosted by Dr Toby Andrew.  This will be open to all interested via Zoom link on the day.

Dr Ernest Turro will be doing a talk “Whole-genome Sequencing analytical methods for Identifying the Genetic Determinants of Rare Diseases “ he is an Associate Professor in Genetics and Genomic Sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. His research focuses on the development and application of statistical methods for interpreting genomic and phenotypic data. Previously, at the University of Cambridge, he was the lead biostatistician of the UK’s NIHR-funded pilot project for the 100,000 Genomes Project. During that time, he made contributions towards understanding the genetic causes of rare hereditary disorders and he supervised the bioinformatic component of a diagnostic platform for patients with bleeding and platelet disorders Prior to this, at Imperial College London and at Cambridge, Ernest developed a number of influential statistical methods for modelling gene expression data
