PhenoTips Speaker Series Presents Deep Phenotyping in the Genomic Medicine Era
Deep Phenotyping in the Genomic Medicine Era
POSTPONED to March, date TBA

Join us live for the sixth, exclusive installment of PhenoTips’ Speaker Series, “Deep Phenotyping in the Genomic Medicine Era”.

The session features a presentation by Dr. Olaf Bodamer, translational research thought leader and Associate Chief of Genetics and Genomics at Boston Children's Hospital.

Although the coming era will allow physicians and patients to access large-scale data with the potential to stratify and thereby improve medical treatment, the ability to find correct and up-to-date information with sufficiently detailed and accurate phenotypic descriptions will be essential to exploit this data to its fullest.

With over a decade of experience at the nexus of Clinical Genetics and Translation Science, Dr. Bodamer will touch upon leveraging translational research to identify novel underlying molecular mechanisms of disease, understand phenotypic variability at the molecular level, and discuss novel biomarkers and related therapeutic approaches.

Event breakdown:
• 45 minute presentation by Dr. Olaf Bodamer
• 15 minute audience Q & A, hosted by Dr. Pawel Buczkowicz

Speakers

Dr. Olaf Bodamer
Associate Chief of Genetics and Genomics @Boston Children's Hospital
Dr. Bodamer obtained his M.D. degree from the University of Heidelberg, Germany and his Ph.D. degree from the University of Saarland, Germany. Following Pediatric residencies in Germany and at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London he moved to the United States for a fellowship in Clinical and Biochemical Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas. In 2015, Dr. Bodamer was recruited at Boston Children’s Hospital as the Associate Chief for Genetics and Genomics, where he also has an established research laboratory and is the director of the Kabuki syndrome program at BCH. He is a member of several Editorial and Scientific Advisory Boards, including Molecular Genetics and Metabolism, Journal of Inherited Diseases and Translational Medicine, and of Patient Organizations respectively. Dr. Bodamer has a busy clinical practice at Boston Children’s Hospital where he sees individuals with complex genetic disorders. For details see bodamerlab.org.
Dr. Pawel Buczkowicz
Chief Operating Officer and VP of Scientific Affairs @PhenoTips
Pawel Buczkowicz, PhD has Lean Six Sigma certification and a PhD in cancer genetics and molecular pathology from the University of Toronto. He has worked on various projects including using next-generation sequencing technologies to improve therapies for high-risk childhood cancer, development and validation of clinical genetic tests, and translational research on pediatric stroke, vasculitis, and brain tumors. Based on his translational research on brainstem gliomas, published in various high impact journals such as Nature Genetics, including the discovery of novel mutations in human cancers and the development of clinical correlates, a new World Health Organization classification was implemented for pediatric gliomas. Dr. Buczkowicz is passionate about streamlining clinical workflows in order to improve the healthcare experience for both patient and doctor and believes smart and efficient software will revolutionize the way medicine is practiced.
