Jun Shen, PhD was honored as the 2014 recipient of the ACMG Foundation/Signature Genomics from PerkinElmer, Inc. Travel Award at the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) 2014 Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting in Nashville, TN.

Dr. Shen was selected to receive the award for her platform presentation, "Clinical Validation of a Novel Combinatorial Algorithm that Predicts Pathogenicity of Human Missense Variants with High Accuracy."

Dr. Shen completed her PhD in Neurobiology at Harvard University, and completed her Postdoctoral Fellowship in Neurobiology with a focus on the inner ear at Howard Hughes Medical Institution/Harvard Medical School. Dr. Shen received her Bachelor of Arts in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Computer Science at Dartmouth College. She is currently an Instructor in Pathology at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School and an Assistant Laboratory Director, Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, Partners HealthCare Center for Personalized Genetic Medicine.

The ACMG Foundation/Signature Genomics Travel Award is given to an ACMG Trainee member whose abstract submission was chosen as a platform presentation during the ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting. The ACMG Program Committee selects the Travel Award recipient based on scientific merit. In recognition of the selected presentation, Signature Genomics covers the travel costs for the recipient to the ACMG meeting.

"The Foundation for Genetic and Genomic Medicine is grateful to Signature Genomics for its continued generous support of the development of medical genetic researchers through this Travel Award," said Bruce R. Korf, MD, PhD FACMG, president of the ACMG Foundation for Genetic and Genomic Medicine.

"Signature Genomics is pleased to support the recognition of young researchers like Dr. Shen who are working in the field of genetics and genomics.
