Webinar: “From Data to Diagnosis: WGS and WES in Patient Care”


Wednesday, May 8th 2024 – 10:00 AM (CEST)

Join our upcoming educational webinar for physicians, where we highlight the critical role of genetic testing in clinical practice. From recognizing signs of genetic diseases to exploring various genetic test options and interpreting genetic findings, this webinar covers essential aspects of modern medicine.

A highlight of the webinar is an in-depth review of interesting patient cases by our guest speaker Dr. Eliane Chouery. She will offer practical insights by showcasing real-life scenarios where genetic testing has significantly contributed to diagnosis and treatment.

Experience an interactive discussion, where you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions, share experiences, and explore the application of genetic testing within your clinical practice.

Guestspeaker: Dr. Eliane Chouery

Eliane Chouery obtained her PhD in Human Genetics and Molecular Biology from Université de Versailles Saint Quentein-en-Yvelines, France in 2008. She established, in 1998, the Molecular Biology Unit for molecular diagnosis, and in 2005 the Human Identification section at Saint Joseph University of Beirut. She moved in September 2020 to the Lebanese American University to contribute to the establishment of a genetics department, and joined the Gilbert and Rose-Marie Chagoury School of Medicine as associate Professor and as co-coordinator of the Genetics discipline.

Besides her expertise in the field of molecular diagnoses, her main research projects are based on the identification of genes involved in orphan diseases, of which mainly syndromic and non-syndromic intellectual disability, neurodegenerative disorders and deafness. Her work in linking genes to human disorders contributes to the understanding of the physiopathogenic mechanism driving these diseases which might enable the elucidation of physiological mechanisms, and may in some cases lead to the implementation of new therapeutic approaches. Today, she is author and co-author of 130 papers published in peer-reviewed journals with an h-index of 38 and 5179 citations (as per March 2024). Dr. Chouery has been recognized by several awards in acknowledgment of her achievements.

Presentor: Dr. Allison Faber

Dr. Allison Faber is head of Product and Customer Service at Arcensus. She has a background in research and diagnostic genetics. She completed a PhD in Physiology at the Medical College of Wisconsin and postdoctoral research at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine.
