Big Genes and Little Genes
Human height is largely under genetic control, but there is no "height gene." Instead, there are many genes that affect height, and most of them have small effects that add up together with other ones. Presented by Dr. William Gibson, co-discoverer of Cohen-Gibson syndrome, Investigator, BC Children's Hospital; Professor, Department of Medical Genetics, Faculty of Medicine, UBC. | Watch here.
Scientific Discovery Is Just a Beginning to Helping Children Lead Healthier Lives
How do we make medications (drugs) safer for all patients? I use the sciences of pharmacology and medical genetics to understand why some people benefit from drugs and others are harmed. Presented by Dr. Bruce Carleton, Investigator & Director, Pharmaceutical Outcomes Programme, BC Children's Hospital; Division Head, Translational Therapeutics, Department of Pediatrics, UBC. | Watch here.
