Latrice Landry

Dr. Latrice Landry is a translational genomicist with training in epidemiology, bioinformatics and clinical molecular genetics. My research focuses on the systematic integration of multiple genomic modalities into molecular diagnostics to aid in clinical decision making. My process focuses on the use of bioinformatics pipelines as well as variant curation to incorporate genomic data in molecular diagnostics. Furthermore, I seek to ensure the generalizability of these diagnostic processes for all populations. To this end working with my mentor Heidi Rehm and collaborators at both the FDA and NHGRI, I am working to identify and evaluate disparities in molecular diagnostics, as well as pursue ways to optimize these processes to eliminate such disparities. This systematic approach to studying disparities and the integration of multiple genomic modalities in molecular diagnostics is imperative to the equality and success of precision medicine.
