Dr Manolio is based in Bethesda, Maryland and directs the National Human Genome Research Institute’s (NHGRI) Division of Genomic Medicine, where she leads programs to develop and implement genomic applications in clinical care.

She moved to NHGRI in 2005 to lead efforts in applying genomic technologies to population research, including the Electronic Medical Records and Genetics (eMERGE) Network, the NHGRI Genome-Wide Association Catalog, the Implementing Genomics in Practice (IGNITE) Network, and the Clinical Genome (ClinGen) Resource.

She continues to practice and teach internal medicine at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences.

She has research interests in genome-wide association studies of complex diseases, ethnic differences in disease risk, and incorporating genomic findings into clinical care.

Dr Manolio will be visiting Brisbane briefly and QGHA are delighted to have the opportunity to host this seminar with her. Please come along us as she shares her experiences of implementing genomics into healthcare.
