Description

In this new book, noted geneticist and veteran OUP author, Moyra Smith, will present a comprehensive critical review of the translation of genetic and genomic research into health care. Dr. Smith's motivation for writing is driven by the gap that exists between the rather amazing discoveries in medical genetics and genomics at basic science levels and the translation of these advances into evidence-based clinical practice. She will examine experimental and observational research and translation to disease management in single gene disorders, specific genetic syndromes, and complex genetic diseases. She will also examine information technology in genetic medicine, sociocultural factors that impact provision of medical care, and medical education issues with regard to translational genetics in order to help prepare a work force that is better able to utilize evidence-based medicine and to accommodate the rapid changes in genetic and genomic health care.show more

Review quote

This is a high quality book without comparison. Dr. Smith's focus on these topics makes it a unique publication. * Luis F. Escobar MD, MS, St. Vincent Hospital and Health Care Center * ...an excellent book for all clinical geneticists wanting to know where progress in genetics is at, and is partulcarly good for both the trainee and the 'older' geneticist...an excellent, brief, and understandable guide to recent advances in genetics. * Human Genetics *show more
