Cheek to Cheek: Genetic Discoveries and You

CU Denver is pleased to present the inaugural Distinguished Faculty Lecture to be given by Professor Stephanie Santorico, PhD.

The data revolution in genetics has expanded our understanding of many diseases and traits.You name it, and scientists have likely looked at the underlying genetics!With the ability to study millions of locations in a person’s genome, a wealth of information is available. These discoveries are now marketed directly to consumers through companies such as 23andMe and Ancestry.

Learn how these discoveries apply to you, as we step through the science using her own personal history with heart disease as a guide.

Join us for an exciting evening with Dr. Santorico, followed by a reception with light refreshments. Lecture RSVP's requested.
