Five CRL Researchers earn presentations at the 2017 European Society for Human Genetics meetings in Copenhagen.
From May 27th through May 30th 2017 the Cobb Research Lab participated in the European Society for Human Genetics Meetings in Copenhagen, Denmark. These annual meeting feature novel research in human genetics projects. The meeting was an opportunity to meet with Cobb Research Laboratory collaborators from University of Copenhagen and The National Institute of Health. Of particular interest was a conference session that focused on the genetics of underrepresented populations. Dr. Latifa Jackson (pictured below) attended the meetings and presented her work entitled “Violence impacts allostatic load IgE and Epstein Barr Virus levels in urban youth”.
Five members of the research group had their work accepted for presentation at this international conference: These included: Dr. Fatimah Jackson, Gretchen Johnson, Christopher Cross, Carter Clinton and Dr. Latifa Jackson. Their research covered a diverse array of human genetics related projects including the Cobb Collection genomic analyses, the forced migration of Africans in St. Helena Island (South Atlantic), the genomic analysis of New York African Burial Ground grave soil samples, and the role of genomic testing and its interpretation on African American identity. ****
