July 2014 - In this issue, Dr. Bland interviews Eric Schadt, PhD, Director of the Icahn Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
Dr. Schadt--along with his collaborator Dr. Stephen Friend--has recently launched The Resilience Project. The goal is to study healthy individuals whose genetics indicate high risk of disease, yet they never show any signs of the disorder. Dr. Schadt believes understanding how individuals remain healthy (or "resilient") may provide insights into disease pathogenesis and new treatments.
