Certificate of Achievement

Mary Templeman Hogg - O'Rourke

has completed the following course:

Genomic Medicine: Transforming Patient Care in Diabetes

University of Exeter

This course explored the value of understanding the underlying pathological mechanism of a disease, to enable progression from genomic testing to improvements in clinical care; different modes of inheritance for diabetes, the molecular basis of these inheritance patterns, and how this relates to risk; the process of discovering novel genetic mutations in the genome; the pattern of inheritance, to design a strategy for gene discovery, through to laboratory techniques used for genomic sequencing.

4 weeks, 2 hours per week
