Clinical Practice Session

Merging Genetic Science with Clinical Care

November 18, 2016 | 04:30 PM - 06:30 PM

Location: W184

Session Description

The genetics field has played a crucial role in uncovering pathological mechanisms of disease. Clinicians must adapt to not only understanding the significance of basic testing platforms available to them but also to the indications for launching on genetic studies. This session reviews current genetic testing strategies, highlights the terminology used in the field, and then applies genomic findings to clinical practice. Finally, the speakers review some of the most influential genetic findings to shape the practice of nephrology.

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. identify the role of testing platforms in uncovering genetic causes of renal diseases; 2. recognize the role of genetic and functional testing in complement-mediated renal diseases; 3. explain the utility of genetic testing in podocyte disorders; 4. define the role of genetic testing for polycystic kidney disease.
