Molecular Targets Arising from GWAS

Timeslot: Friday, April 28, 2017 - 5:00pm to 5:30pm


Translational of genetic associations towards biological mechanism that contribute to disease is a challenge. From the complex list of genes identified as susceptibility factors for osteoarthritis, some novel targets for intervention are emerging. Both in vitro and in vivo experimental approaches are essential to bridge the gap with the clinic.
