Being an Ally in Academics is looking forward to hosting Latifa Jackson, Ph.D., for the Genes and Society: Decolonizing Human Genetic Research Workshop Series. As part of a two-day engagement, Jackson will join us for a “fireside chat” and Q&A session to answer your questions about her research on the effect of sexual and racial discrimination on human health, her work with the 1,000 African-American Genomes Project, her career path and more.

Jackson’s research centers on the genomics of the African diaspora, including utilizing bioinformatics approaches to identify complex phenotypes underlying health disparities. She is a member of Howard’s William Montague Cobb Research Laboratory, which contributes to the 1,000 African-American Genomes Project. She uses bioinformatics, functional genomics and evolutionary biology approaches to study genetic patterns that contribute to disease phenotypes within a biological anthropology framework.

For a list of other events during Jackson's visit at NC State, go to the Genetics and Genomics Academy website.
