The genetics of intellectual disability: Episode 15
June 13 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
This webinar is part of the popular Genetics of webinar series and will provide an interesting update on the genetic origins of intellectual disability, as well as explore what challenges remain in this area.
Our speakers will explore what research is required after a genetic diagnosis of intellectual disability and what families would value the most from the diagnostic experience. This webinar is also a special chance to discuss what the experience of receiving a genetic diagnosis is like for patients and their families.
During this webinar you will:
- Understand what we do know about the genetic origin of intellectual disabilities
- Appreciate the challenges and opportunities in research in this field
- Recognise how post-diagnostic research is important in order to understand the different ways people experience intellectual disability
- Value the insights gained from those who have received a genetic diagnosis of intellectual disability
This meeting is in association with the RSM Intellectual Disability Section.
The genetics of… series has been developed following feedback from delegates. Presented by the Medical Genetics section of the Royal Society of Medicine, this series of talks will focus on the role of genetics in different areas of health and wellbeing.
