About Advances in Variant Interpretation through Data Sharing Efforts

Steven Harrison is currently a Clinical Molecular Genetics Fellow at Harvard Medical School and the Laboratory for Molecular Medicine (Partners Healthcare Personalized Medicine) and has recently started as the Associate Laboratory Director of the Clinical Research Sequencing Platform (CRSP) of the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT. His work focuses on variant interpretation approaches and standardization at both a CLIA-certified molecular diagnostic laboratory and as part of the NIH-funded Clinical Genome Research (ClinGen) program. Within ClinGen, Steven co-chairs the Sequence Variant Interpretation Working Group, which aims to develop general recommendation to the ACMG-AMP variant interpretation guidelines, and the Sequence Variant Inter-Laboratory Discrepancy Resolution Task Team which aims to resolve variants with the interpretation differences between clinical laboratories. Steven was the recipient of the 2018 Richard King Award for Best Publication by a Trainee in Genetics in Medicine. He completed his PhD in Genetics & Development in 2014 at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Centre.
