ASCI Perspectives: Jose C. Florez, MD, PhD
DEIC Committee member Dr. Vijay Sankaran interviewed Jose C. Florez, MD, PhD (view profile), who serves as Physician-in-Chief and Chair of the Department of Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and a member of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. Dr. Florez’s lab has conducted and analyzed high-throughput genomic studies in type 2 diabetes. As MGH chair, he oversees numerous faculty members and trainees. In this interview, Dr. Florez discusses how genomic medicine can transform patient care, as well as the importance of being open to change in one’s career.

Filmed at the American Diabetes Association (ADA) annual meeting 2019, San Francisco, USA
1) What are the major obstacles to achieving personalised medicine in diabetes?
2) What is the role of epigenetic changes in the progression of type 1 and type 2 diabetes?
3) How will increased understanding of these changes affect the management of patients of diabetes?
4) What further research is needed to elucidate the genetic architecture of type 2 diabetes?
5) What recent advances in translational research in diabetes have excited you most?
Highlights of the ADA 79th Scientific Sessions
We take a look at some of the highlights of the last two days of the ADA 79th Scientific Sessions, and who better to take a look at the program with us than ADA Scientific Sessions planning committee chair Dr Jose Florez.
Leveraging genomics to illuminate race/ethnicity differences in type 2 diabetes
The lecture is part of the Genomics and Health Disparities Lecture Series, a collaborative effort that was formed to enhance opportunities for dialogue about how innovations in genomics research and technology can impact health disparities.
Midsummer Nights Science talk at Broad
What is diabetes? Why do some people develop diabetes and others do not? Could prevention and treatment be individualized for each patient? Using diabetes as a case study, Jose Florez will discuss the emerging approach of precision medicine â€” a quest to unravel the genetic basis of diseases and their complications in order to provide a basis for effective, tailored therapies. Florez will illustrate the power of contemporary genetics to address these crucial areas.
