Kidney Week

Basic/Clinical Science Session

Integrating Kidney Genetics into Clinical Practice

November 02, 2023 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: Room 107, Pennsylvania Convention Center

Session Description

The field of genomics has grown at a rapid pace, and knowledge of the genetic architecture underlying common and rare disease in nephrology is continuously expanding. As a result, integrating genetic testing in the kidney clinic is becoming an increasingly necessary skill. In this session, various aspects of developing a kidney genetics clinic are discussed.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Explain how to interpret genetic results in monogenic disease
  • Describe the economic argument to fund genetic testing to policy makers
  • Articulate a reverse phenotyping approach integrating genetic testing with phenotypes
  • Summarize the process behind building a nephrology genetics clinic

Learning Pathway(s)

  • Genetic Diseases and Development
