Dr Kate Baker

Connecting Genes and Brains: A Global Journey

Talk synopsis: How many people does it take to discover a new genetic disorder? Why is it often difficult to prove a new disorder is real? And how can we make genetic diagnosis count for the pioneering patients and families leading the wave of new discoveries? Join Kate on a journey from Aylesbury to Amman, Munich to Melbourne, and have your say on where she should travel next. 

Bio: Kate is a Cambridge-based clinical geneticist and cognitive neuroscientist. Her research bridges the gap between genetic diagnosis and real-life problems for individuals with developmental brain disorders and their families.
