Genetics of eye disease, Dr. David Hardt, ARVO

The ARVO 2017 Opening Keynote speaker is Mary-Claire King, PhD, professor of medical genetics at the University of Washington. During her doctoral training she found that humans and chimpanzees share 99% of their genome. She was the first to identify and name BRCA1, an inheritable gene associated with breast cancer.

Fascinating talk about the details of her groundbreaking research in cancer causing gene mutations, with some advice for the eye research community on things she learned that may apply to our study of the genetics of eye disease.
