Webinar: Genetic investigation of neurodevelopmental disorders

Over the last decade advances in genetic testing technologies have transformed the genetic diagnosis of neurodevelopmental disorders, with a specific diagnosis possible in more than half of affected children.  This webinar highlights these advances and the appropriate use of genetic and genomic tests in these children.

 

Presenter:

Prof David Amor,  Galli Chair in Developmental Medicine, University of Melbourne

David trained in paediatrics and genetics at the Royal Children’s Hospital before completing a PhD in Chromosome Biology at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute.  In 2016 he was appointed to the Galli Chair in Developmental Medicine at the University of Melbourne where his research focuses on the genetics of intellectual disability, the translation of new genetic technologies into clinical practice and the identification of genes for rare syndromes.
