Genetic testing in cardiovascular medicine: Who and why?

Robert Nussbaum, MD
November 13, 2018
View Recording

Please join us on November 13th to learn from Dr. Nussbaum as he discusses the clinical utility of genetic testing for heritable cardiovascular conditions, including arrhythmias, cardiomyopathies, familial hypercholesterolemia, and aortic aneurysms.

Prior to joining Invitae, Dr. Nussbaum was chief of the Division of Genomic Medicine at UCSF Health, where he also held leadership roles in the Cancer Genetics and Prevention Program and the Program in Cardiovascular Genetics. Dr. Nussbaum is a board-certified internist and medical geneticist who holds a B.S. in applied mathematics from Harvard College and an M.D. from Harvard Medical School in the Harvard-MIT joint program in Health Sciences and Technology. He completed his residency in internal medicine at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and a fellowship in medical genetics at the Baylor College of Medicine.


Clinical prevalence and properties of deletions and duplications within disease genes

Please join us on July 24th to learn from Dr. Aradhya as he discusses a study recently published by Invitae in Genetics in Medicine, showing that intragenic copy number variants (CNVs; deletions/duplications) are a substantial proportion of clinically important variants reported in genetic testing across diverse clinical specialties.

Dr. Aradhya is a board-certified molecular geneticist and cytogeneticist, who has helped to shape professional practices and technological applications in clinical genetic testing over the past 15 years. He joined Invitae to help bring genetics into mainstream medicine by innovating laboratory technologies, fostering advances in evidence-based clinical standards, and building mechanisms to empower individuals globally to access their genetic information.
