Biotechnology Entrepreneurs: War Stories from the Front - part of Pittsburgh Life Sciences Week
Thu 5/25/2017 10:00AM - 12:00PM
Public Health Auditorium (G23)

The Department of Human Genetics at the Graduate School of Public Health is hosting a panel discussion featuring a group of experienced regional biotechnology founders and entrepreneurs. Research is the process of understanding the world around us, and it is a dramatically different skill set from translation or commercialization which births solutions that have never existed before into the world. Though critical to realizing the potential impact of the massive knowledge-generation of our regional universities, related skills are not taught, facilitated, or even actively endorsed at a level concomitant to the importance of this endeavor. This panel will highlight courageous and passionate individuals who have embarked on unchaperoned journeys – what drove them and what they endured. We will have a lively discussion about how they have translated new knowledge into products to positively impact health. The hope is that a pattern emerges through this interactive moderated session that enables the regional community of thousands of researchers to unlock the true potential of their work.

Journal Club "Rules and Regulations"

  • The goal of journal club is to provide an informal venue for scientific interaction in the Department of Human Genetics.  
  • Students are advised to get advice from a faculty member when choosing a paper to present. The ideal journal club article is something that is of both scientific importance and general interest.
  • Let the faculty facilitator (Candy Kammerer) know what your choice is 2 weeks before your presentation so that the link can be posted on the web site.

Barbara Koenig

“Using ‘Deliberative’ Community Engagement to Guide Newborn Screening Policy”

Objectives:

  • Explain how novel sequencing technologies trouble existing compromises in state newborn screening programs. 
  • Describe how approaches based on deliberative democracy theory can help assess the “democratic deficit” in contemporary health policy debates.  
  • Clarify the distinction between diagnostic vs screening applications of whole genome sequencing technologies in newborns. 
  • Consider how best to balance individual informed consent by parents with community governance of
    newborn screening, a critical case study in public health ethics.

  • IF YOU NEED TO CANCEL OR RESCHEDULE a presentation, it is YOUR responsibility to find a substitute.
  • Please let the faculty facilitator know if you need a laptop or other media needs.
  • Presentations should begin with an introduction to the general topic area and what is interesting or important about the work being presented. Try to explain key concepts and definitions. Do not assume everyone in the audience is an expert or that everyone in the audience has read the paper.
