 Session Abstract – PMWC 2022 Silicon Valley


Track Chairs:
Stephen Kingsmore, Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine
Kate Kernan, UPMC

The rapid development of genomic sequencing technologies has decreased the cost of genetic analysis to the extent that it seems plausible that genome-scale sequencing could have widespread availability in pediatric care. Genomic sequencing provides a powerful diagnostic modality for patients who manifest symptoms of monogenic disease and an opportunity to detect health conditions before their development. However, many technical, clinical, ethical, and societal challenges should be addressed before such technology is widely deployed in pediatric practice.
