GENETIC PREDICTION OF TRAITS AND DISEASES ACROSS DIVERSE POPULATIONS
Alicia R. Martin, research fellow, Massachusetts General Hospital and Broad Institute
In 2018–2019, the Next in Science series at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study focused on innovative research in the study of evolution. The analysis of genetic change examines both historic and current adaptations: how past species evolved over long periods of time and how modern species continue to adjust to present-day conditions.
The Next in Science series provides an opportunity for early-career scientists whose innovative, cross-disciplinary research is thematically linked to introduce their work to one another, to fellow scientists, and to nonspecialists from Harvard and the greater Boston area.
