Human Genome Lecture at Hopkins

Ada Hamosh (pictured at right), associate professor of epidemiology at The Johns Hopkins University's Bloomberg School of Public Health and associate professor of pediatrics at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, will lecture on "The Implications of the Human Genome Project" at noon on Wednesday, Nov. 7, in Shriver Hall on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

This talk will consider what the completion of the Human Genome Project means and what the implications are for one's health and the health and well-being of humankind in the future.

Hamosh, one of the country's leading authorities on genome research, received her B.A. in biology from Wesleyan University, her M.P.H. in epidemiology from what is now the Bloomberg School of Public Health, and her M.D. from the Georgetown University School of Medicine. She is chair of the Maryland State Advisory Council for Hereditary and Congenital Disorders, has authored numerous publications and lectures extensively throughout the United States.

This lecture is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by The Johns Hopkins University Office of Special Events, now in its 36th season of cultural programming on the Homewood campus. Admission is free. For information, call the Office of Special Events at 410-516-7157.
