Human Genetics Seminar "From Public Health Genomics to Precision Public Health" with Muin Khoury (CDC)

Designated as a Public Health Grand Rounds event, this week's Human Genetics Seminar will feature Muin Khoury, director of the Office of Genomics and Precision Public Health at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention speaking on "From Public Health Genomics to Precision Public Health"

Khoury is the founding director of the CDC’s Office of Genomics and Precision Public Health. The Office was formed in 1997 to assess the impact of advances in human genetics and the Human Genome Project on public health and disease prevention. In 2019, the Office was renamed to the Office of Genomics and Precision Public Health.  Khoury has developed a number of successful ongoing national and international initiatives to translate advances in genomics and precision health technologies to recommendations and actions that improve health and prevent disease throughout the life stages.

Khoury has published extensively in the fields of genetic epidemiology, public health genomics and precision public health. He has over 500 scientific publications including articles, books and book chapters. In 2000, he was the lead editor for the book entitled: “Genetics and Public Health in the 21st Century: Using Genetic Information to Improve Health and Prevent Disease”. His 2004 book entitled “Human Genome Epidemiology” illustrates the applications of epidemiologic methods and approaches to the continuum of genomic information from research to practice. In 2010, he published a completely updated second edition of “Human Genome Epidemiology”.

Khoury received his BS degree in biology/chemistry from the American University of Beirut, Lebanon and his medical degree and pediatrics training from the same institution. He received a PhD in human genetics/genetic epidemiology and training in medical genetics from Johns Hopkins University. Khoury is board certified in medical genetics.
