Congressional Biomedical Research Caucus Briefing:
Human Genome to Precision Medicine
 Dr. Eric Green
National Human Genome Research Institute

  1. Monday, July 15, 2019

    Room 2043, Rayburn House Office Building

We want to draw your attention to an invitation you should have already received from the Coalition for the Life Sciences (CLS). On Monday, July 15th at 12:00 noon, CLS cordially invites you to attend a briefing entitled “Human Genome to Precision Medicine” in the Rayburn House Office Building, Room 2043.

We invite you to join the Congressional Biomedical Research Caucus as they welcome Dr. Eric Green, Director of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) at the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Green will provide an overview of the progress in genomics over the last three decades—from the early years of the Human Genome Project to today’s efforts in tailoring medical care based on patients’ genomic profiles. Dr. Green’s significant involvement in the field of genomics, starting with the Human Genome Project and now as NHGRI Director, allows him to convey valuable perspectives and insights about the past, present, and future of genomics research.

We hope you will join us for this exciting presentation and discussion. Please RSVP to Lynn Marquis at cls@coalitionforlifesciences.org.

The Congressional Biomedical Research Caucus provides a forum where Members and staff can interact directly with preeminent researchers responsible for important scientific discoveries. Many of the stunning advances, made possible by NIH funding, highlighted in these presentations have led to improved understanding of the cause, treatment, and prevention of human disease.
