Description: Both rare and common variants comprise the genetic underpinnings of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), a lethal disorder affecting older adults. In this presentation, I will focus on the discovery of IPF rare variants and how our understanding of these risk factors has led to changes in the way pulmonary fibrosis is clinically classified and treated.
This event is hosted as part of the seminar series featuring leaders in precision medicine from across the nation. This event is supported in part by a gift from Pfizer to Columbia.
