Science Fiction or Science Fact? Genetics and the Future of Developmental Research
Danielle Dick, PhD (Rutgers University)
The field of genetics has advanced at an unprecedented pace over the last decade, with a record number of people accessing their own genetic information. Will there come a day when we will all have our genotypes sequenced? And if so, what will that mean for the study of development? In her talk, Dr. Dick will review the current state of genetic research, and discuss the implications of this research for the study of child and adolescent development. She will highlight the unique role developmental researchers can play in shaping how genetic findings are used in the future, and why this research will be so important.
