Presented by:
Joel Hirschhorn MD, PhD

Chief of Endocrinology and Concordia Professor of Pediatrics and Professor of Genetics
Harvard Medical School/Boston Children’s Hospital

Learning Objectives:
1. Appraise the value of different genetic and computational approaches used to identify genes, variants and pathways contributing to polygenic endocrine diseases and quantitative traits

2. Distinguish between the long-term impact of genetic discoveries on biological understanding and short-term impact of genetic discovery and diagnosis for individual patients

3. Appreciate the opportunities and challenges of identifying and diagnosing patients with Mendelian disorders and the potential impact of polygenic risk scores in patients with short stature
