Genome Sequencing & Children with Medical Complexity | CC #4.12

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Explain genome sequencing in general terms to a lay audience
  • Contrast genome sequencing with other genetic tests
  • Generate ideas for how information from genome sequencing could improve care

Dr. Gregory Costain, MD, PhD, FRCPC, Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids)

Dr. Gregory Costain is a physician-scientist who specializes in the diagnosis of rare genetic conditions in children. He joined the Division of Clinical and Metabolic Genetics at SickKids as a staff physician in 2020 after completing his residency training at the University of Toronto. He is also a Scientist-Track Investigator in Genetics and Genome Biology, in the SickKids Research Institute. His research program is focused on understanding the causes and consequences of rare variation in the human genome. His lab uses genome sequencing to discover new disease genes and genotype-phenotype associations, in a setting of an undiagnosed paediatric disease program.
