The Antonija Prelec Memorial Lecture: 2022 - Green

Dr. Eric Green, M.D., Ph.D. - 2022 Antonija Prelec Lecturer

Dr. Eric Green, M.D., Ph.D.

Dr. Eric Green, M.D., Ph.D., is the director of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) at the United States Institutes of Health (NIH). Dr. Green has played an integral role in the Human Genome Project and has co-authored more than 380 scientific publications.

Dr. Green has guided the NHGRI through two major cycles of planning to ensure that investments in genomics will enhance human health. Dr. Green led the efforts to map, sequence, and understand mammalian genomes and has been studying genomics for over 2 decades. His studies have focused on human genetics and identified and characterized human disease genes, including genes that cause hereditary deafness, vascular disease, and inherited peripheral neuropathy.
