Clinvar


Heidi Rehm

Geneticist Heidi Rehm of Harvard Medical School and the Broad Institute has helped develop many of the tools that are fundamental to our ability to harness genomic variation for medical care: ClinGen, ClinVar, Matchmaker and others. Heidi has been called “a pioneer of open science and data sharing.” Today she joins us on the Beagle (a Corona-free zone) to talk about the remarkable extent, in the midst of an era of competitive and market-driven science, to which the field of genomics has been able to develop not only the tools but also the will to collaborate in the pursuit of better patient outcomes.
