During the show, experts will explain how genetic testing is done and how the results are used to help determine if someone is predisposed to developing cancer, Alzheimer’s, or other hereditary diseases.
Rudolph (Rudy) Tanzi, PhD and David Altshuler, MD, PhD, both from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), will participate in the discussion, as well as Dietrich Stephan, PhD and Elissa Levin, MS, CGC, from Navigenics™.
NOVA scienceNOW is also inviting viewers to ask questions online. Questions will be collected until July 3, 2008, and then turned over to Rudy Tanzi. Tanzi, who is the director of the Genetics and Aging Research Unit at MGH and a professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School, will post his answers to selected questions on July 8, 2008.
