Description: This Fall marks the 5th anniversary of the Trans-NIH GeroScience Interest Group (GSIG), which was created to discuss and explore the complex relationships between the biology of aging and the biology of diseases and conditions that are of interest to various institutes and centers across the NIH. You are cordially invited to join us as we celebrate this major milestone and kick off the 2016-2017 GSIG seminar series with a lecture by Dr. Eric Green, the Director of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Dr. Green’s independent research career has included significant involvement in the Human Genome Project from its inception. These efforts eventually blossomed into a highly productive program in comparative genomics that provided important insights about genome structure, function and evolution. As NHGRI’s Director, Dr. Green has led the institute in broadening its research mission, including design and launch of a number of major programs to accelerate the application of genomics to medical care and is foundational for personalized medicine. With the rapidly expanding scope of genomics, his has also involved significant coordination with multiple components of the NIH, as well as other agencies and organizations. Beyond NHGRI-specific programs, Dr. Green has also played an instrumental leadership role in the development of diverse high-profile efforts relevant to genomics, including the Smithsonian-NHGRI exhibition “Genome: Unlocking Life's Code”, the NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) program, the NIH Genomic Data Sharing Policy, and the U.S. Precision Medicine Initiative.

The GeroScience Interest Group (GSIG) is focused on basic biology, but with a longer view towards translation.
