Includes an introduction to Dr. Eric Lander, the recipient of AMP 2016 Award for Excellence in Molecular Diagnostics, by AMP 2016 President Dr. Charles Hill, followed by Dr. Lander's remarks on the Association for Molecular Pathology. Formal scientific presentation begins around the 10-minute mark.

 

The talk will discuss 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 will then describe 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.

The concept of “precancer” clonal proliferation is fundamental to our understanding of the natural evolution of a variety of cancer types and an active area of research. Recent recognition of “pre-malignant” clonal hematopoiesis has been yet another exciting discovery in this area. The speakers will discuss their work in identifying Clonal Hematopoiesis of Indeterminate Potential (CHIP) and its relationship to both aging and the subsequent development of recognized hematopoietic malignancies.

As tests for large numbers of rare genetic conditions come on-line in clinical laboratories, it is becoming increasing difficult to obtain high-quality, well-characterized human samples to use for the purposes of test development, validation, and ongoing proficiency testing. The first presentation will review how the CDC GeT-RM program is helping laboratories access samples for these purposes. Non-invasive prenatal screening (NIPS) for the common triploidies, Down (T21), Edward (T18) and Patau (T13) syndromes, as well as numerical  abnormalities of the sex chromosomes, is now firmly established as an extremely valuable screening tool. However, there is currently no universally accepted or adopted proficiency test (PT) for NIPS. The second presentation will review the substantial challenges in developing PT for NIPS, and review progress in its development.
