In this new book, noted geneticist and veteran OUP author, Moyra Smith, present a comprehensive critical review of the translation of genetic and genomic research into health care. Dr. Smith's motivation for writing is driven by the gap that exists between the rather amazing discoveries in medical genetics and genomics at basic science levels and the translation to disease management in single gene disorders, specific genetic syndromes, and complex genetic diseases. She also examines information technology in genetic medicine, sociocultural factors that impact provision of medical care, and medical education issues with regard to translational genetics in order to help prepare a work force that is better able to utilize evidence-based medicine and to accomodate the rapid changes in genetic and genomic health care.
