ÖPPM Webinar -"Sense and Sensitivity: Computer-aided Facial Phenotyping in Individuals with Genetic Syndromes"

Webinar 1 - 20.10.2020, 16:00 - 17:00

In my lecture, I will give an introduction into the topic of computer-aided facial phenotyping. I will discuss the approache's strengths and limitations and how to use it for faster exome diagnostics in patients with genetic syndromes.


About me:
Dr. med. Martin A. Mensah (Charité Berlin, Germany)
As a physician I am currently completing my specialist training as a human geneticist at the Institute for Medical Genetics and Human Genetics of the Charité - Berlin. I am a fellow of the Digital Clinician Scientist Program of the Berlin Institute of Health with my main research area being the computer-aided interpretation of image data from patients with genetic syndromes.

The talk and the discussion are chaired by
Univ.-Prof.in Dr.in med.univ. Barbara Obermayer-Pietsch (Medical University Graz, Austria)

ÖPPM Webinar -"Public perspectives on the donation and sharing of genomic and health information: findings of a global study"

Webinar 2: 24.11.2020, 16:30 - 17:30

In this talk, I discuss the importance of public and patient perspectives in the development of genomic medicine, and present the findings of the Your DNA, Your Say study. Your DNA, Your Say is a survey of public attitudes towards the donation and sharing of genomic and health data, including 37,000 responses in 15 languages across 22 countries. I present the findings of the study in relation to people’s willingness to donate data about them for clinical and research use, and examine how this is influenced by their familiarity with genetics, their views of genetic information and their trust in those responsible for collecting and managing data.

About me:
Dr. Richard Milne (Wellcome Genome Campus)
I am a social scientist based in the Society and Ethics Research group at the Wellcome Genome Campus, where I lead on the analysis of the Your DNA, Your Say study, and conduct research on social and ethical questions associated with the collection and use of biodata, and the development of tools for the early detection of common disease. I also co-lead work on Ethical, Legal and Social Implications within the University of Cambridge Public Health initiative.

The talk and the discussion are chaired by
Univ. Prof.in Mag.a Dr.in Barbara Prainsack (Department of Political Science, Vienna, Austria)
