Large-scale human genetic studies have succeeded in identifying hundreds of thousands of variants associated with human diseases and traits. One of the grand challenges on the frontier of human genomics and health is to pioneer new scalable paradigms and technologies to systematically link these many variants to cellular programs and gene regulation networks driving complex disorders. This will enable a deep understanding of the genetically-anchored biological programs affected in diseases, lay the foundation for a new generation of rationally designed medicines, and benefit patients and societies across the globe. The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Genomic Mechanisms of Disease is thrilled to host a symposium highlighting some of the important work and progress ongoing across the vibrant Broad Institute community in this domain. Please join us for an exciting day of science and discussions around this topic.
