This Award for Excellence talk discusses the foundations for discovering the genetic basis of common human diseases including the early development of theoretical methods for mapping the genes underlying polygenic traits; sequencing of the human genome comprehensive discovery of the genetic variation in the human population; systematic characterization of genomic features; and empirical insights into the genetic architecture of common human disease. It describes recent progress in genetic analysis of important diseases such as schizophrenia, heart disease, inflammatory bowel disease and obesity and close by looking forward to the years ahead.

- Recognize the history of discovering the genetic basis of human diseases.

- Analyze the characterization of genetic variation and genomic features.

- Conclude that progress in genomic medicine will be based on emerging discoveries.
