One in a Billion: Join us for a book discussion with HudsonAlpha faculty investigators

Please join us for a discussion of the book One in a Billion, the amazing story of a four-year-old boy with an unknown disease and how scientists used genomic medicine to help save his life. These scientists, true pioneers in the new field of genomic medicine, were recruited to HudsonAlpha last year.

The authors, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Mark Johnson and Kathleen Gallagher, make it easy to understand the significance of this achievement as they tell a gripping personal story of a family’s medical odyssey.

We’ll meet in the HudsonAlpha auditorium on Thursday, September 15, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. to discuss the book with HudsonAlpha’s Howard Jacob, PhD; Liz Worthey, PhD; David Bick, MD, PhD; and Joe Lazar, MD, PhD, who were involved in this major scientific breakthrough.

The full title of the book is One in a Billion: The Story of Nic Volker and the Dawn of Genomic Medicine. You may purchase the book in area bookstores or online. To learn more about the book, read this excellent review in the Tampa Bay Times.

Register here for this free event. We hope to see you there.
