In this episode of the Emerging Tech Roundup, James Haight and Kyle Lacy interview Sean George from Invitae. The three discuss trends in human genetic research and what they will mean for the future of healthcare and medicine. The episode navigates everything from fundamental shifts in how we diagnose diseases and design our healthcare to whether we should be afraid of a GATTACA-like future.
Listeners should note that since the date of the episode’s recording Invitae has announced a new patient pay price of $475 for its full menu of genetic tests. In the episode, we mention that genetic testing prices are falling sharply and thought listeners would find this of interest.
