Dr Eimear Kenny - Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, USA

Eimear Kenny talks to ecancer at EAPM 2017 in Belfast.

She discusses the link between genes, ancestry and health outcomes. 

One example is a huge genetic map of New Yorkers which can predict health risk for certain populations from different areas.

She gives some specific examples of how this works.

It will provide a guided prediction in order to devote resources and interventions to the right places, at the right time.
