Bay Club Members Enjoy Genetics Lecture

geneticsLast month, Bay Club members welcomed Molecular Geneticist, Nicole Faulkner, Ph.D., FAMCG as she presented, “How to Make a Perfect Human in the 21st Century.”  Nicole trained at WPI, UMASS Medical and Harvard Medical School and is currently a Clinical Molecular Geneticist at the Invitae Clinical Testing Laboratory in Cambridge.  She shared her more than 20 years of experience in the field of human genetics in clinical testing of genetic diseases, prenatal diagnosis, identity testing, and pharmacogenetic profiling of cancer tumors.  In her presentation, Nicole spoke about the examples of DNA variants that cause inherited disease, the modern science of embryo selection for couples in fertility treatments and the future of curing genetic-based disease by fixing the “typos in the instructions of life.”

Members raved about and were fascinated by Dr. Faulkner’s lecture and her captivating approach to presenting the complex subject matter.
