Genetic testing update with 23andMe’s Noura Abul-Husn

pharmaphorum podcast episode 89

In the latest instalment of the pharmaphorum podcast, editor-in-chief Jonah Comstock is joined by Dr Noura Abul-Husn, VP of genomic health at 23andMe.

Building off of a recent survey published by the company, they discuss not just the role that 23andMe has played in increasing the availability of consumer genetic testing, but also how an increased use of genetic testing, and a push towards proactive gene testing, could signal a paradigm shift in healthcare.

Jonah and Noura talk about what true personalised medicine, driven by preventive genetic testing, might look like and what barriers need to be overcome to get there.

It’s a well-timed podcast, coming just one week before the World Without Disease conference, which will be focused on preventive health and screening. You can still register for the show here.
