Aaron talks to Dr. Tatiana Foroud about her career and her current work in genetics and genomics. Her work spans from the early days of searching for DNA markers for rare disorders to today’s search for genetic causes and potential treatments around Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Foroud’s career relates a story about how the technology and techniques have developed over decades, and how these breakthroughs could lead to new treatments. We’ll also get into the explosion in home genetic testing, and how this trend has changed public perception of genetic testing and treatments.
