Ambry Genetics Presents Research on the Importance of Reclassifying Disease-Causing Genes at the National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) Annual Meeting
Date:11/15/2018

Researchers from Ambry Genetics (Ambry), a leading clinical genetics testing lab, will present new scientific evidence on gene-disease relationships and how it supports medical management decisions at the National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) Annual Meeting to be held in Atlanta, November 14-17.

Ambry has been selected by NSGC to lead a platform presentation entitled, “In a Class all by Itself: The Importance of Reclassifying Genes and Variants to Better Guide Patient Care (Powis, Z. et al) on Friday, November 16 at 11:15AM. In this session, Ambry will present the value of their ‘patient for life’ program and how exome reanalysis can find more answers for patients.

“Exome sequencing is a powerful tool for identifying inherited conditions at the pace of modern personalized medicine,” stated Brigette Tippin Davis, Ph.D., FACMG, Sr. Vice President, Research & Development, Ambry Genetics. “Our findings show that proactive reanalysis that keeps pace with the continuum of new gene discovery and variant interpretation can improve diagnosis and bring clarity to patients, ultimately improving their care.”

Additionally, Ambry will be sponsoring a session entitled “Maximizing Genetic Testing Results for Hereditary Cancer Using RNA Studies.” This CEU eligible event will be held on Thursday, November 15 at 12PM.

Ambry will also be presenting 6 poster abstracts focused on delivering insights on various hereditary conditions and in particular the benefit of using multi-gene panels to better identify individuals at-risk. Poster presentations also include interesting new findings on genes related to several syndromes including Li Fraumeni, Von Hippel-Lindau and Marfan.
