Section on Genetics and Genomics

Co-Chairs: Craig P. Hersh, MD, MPH & Blanca E. Himes, PhD

Welcome to the website for the Section on Genetics and Genomics. The Section on Genetics and Genomics welcomes all ATS members who are interested in genetics, genomics, and other “omics” technologies (proteomics, metabolomics, etc.) as they pertain to the diverse array of diseases encountered in pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine. We encourage members of any ATS assembly to join our section. Although the Section on Genetics and Genomics resides within Allergy, Inflammation, and Immunology, our current members derive from multiple other assemblies.

Genetics and genomics play an ever-expanding role in scientific research and medical practice in the 21st century. Besides providing a forum for the exchange of ideas among researchers in genetics and genomics, the section aims to increase knowledge and understanding of genetics and genomics among the broader pulmonary, critical care, and sleep communities. We also aim to encourage fellows and trainees to pursue research in these exciting fields. Please see our section’s mission statement. To accomplish these goals, our section’s major emphases are on highlighting genetics and genomics research at the ATS International Conference and teaching genetics and genomics concepts through symposia, seminars, and post-graduate courses at the ATS International Conference.

If you are interested in learning more about the Section on Genetics and Genomics, email us at gg@thoracic.org or attend the section’s annual Sunday night business meeting at the ATS International Conference.
