G2P’s summer began with our team members participating in the Boston Athletic Association 10K on Sunday June 23rd! Over the past few months, G2P faculty have attended numerous conferences nationwide, been featured in podcasts discussing the new preventive genomics clinic, and engaged with leaders in science, business, and industry in support of the Franca Fund.
Spring saw accomplishments by team members through numerous projects. G2P officially kicked-off the PeopleSeq consortium in Boston this January! Our very own, Carrie Blout, MS, CGC, was one of 86 Partner’s individuals awarded the Partners In Excellence Award.
Carrie Blout, MS, CGC, Director of Research Development and Senior genetic Counselor at Genomes2People was selected as a 2019 Individual recipient of the Partners In Excellence Awards- awarded to individuals at Partners HealthCare for going above and beyond in their work efforts.
The PeopleSeq Consortium officially kicked off their NIH- funded project in Boston, bringing together a cohort of leading academic and industry collaborators.

Winter highlights include Dr. Robert Green’s interview with Rob Reid on the pros and cons to genetic sequencing, G2P team members’ participation in the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) conference, and our Understand Your Genome Educational Event in Boston.
Highlights include a CBS feature on the BabySeq Project, the announcement of the MilSeq collaboration with the U.S. Air Force, and more.
A remarkable 22% of patients had new monogenic disease risks, previously unknown to them or higher than expected. instead of showing signs of nervousness and upset, the patients took the next step into seeing a physician to discuss what they could do about it.
In spring, The New York Times highlighted G2P’s work with REVEAL-SCAN, team members participated in a 10k marathon to raise money for genetic research, and G2P researchers published a new article on direct-to-consumer testing.
