Dr Jodie Ingles has delivered the prestigious plenary Janus Lecture at the American National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) annual conference in Atlanta, Georgia (US).

Dr Ingles is Head of the Clinical Cardiac Genetics Laboratory in Centenary’s Molecular Cardiology Program.

According to the NSGC, the Janus Lecture is “named after the ancient Roman god, Janus, who is said to have been depicted with two faces, one looking to the past and one to the future.”

Dr Ingles was selected from a nomination process to present this year’s Janus Lecture, in which she spoke about the past and future of genetic counselling in relation to inherited heart disease, with an emphasis on research-based care.

The 2018 NSGC conference was attended by about 2,500 genetic counsellors from all around the world.

Fellow Centenary genetic counsellor Laura Yeates also delivered a presentation, in which she spoke about their qualitative study on preimplantation genetic diagnosis experience in inherited heart disease families.
