David H. Ledbetter, PhD, FACMG is the 2008-2009 Luminex/ACMGF Award recipient
Date:4/2/2008

The American College of Medical Genetics Foundation (ACMGF) recently awarded David H. Ledbetter, PhD, FACMG of Emory University the 2008-2009 Luminex/ACMGF Award at the ACMG 2008 Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting in Phoenix, AZ. The award includes a $100,000 grant and is aimed at the promotion of safe and effective genetic testing and services, including the development of research guidelines.

Medical geneticists play a vital role in translating genetic research into medical services and in ensuring the safe integration of genetics into health care and public health. The Luminex/ACMGF Award recognizes this crucial role of medical geneticists by supporting an individual in undertaking activities that promote the highest levels of safety and effectiveness in genetic testing and genetic services, said R. Rodney Howell, MD, FACMG, President of the ACMGF.

Dr. Ledbetter is the Robert W. Woodruff Professor of Human Genetics and Director of the Division of Medical Genetics in the Department of Human Genetics at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta. Along with his colleague Dr. Christa Martin of Emory, he is currently leading a consortium of academic cytogenetics laboratories to develop a uniform, evidence-based Molecular Karyotype and shared national database to rapidly accumulate data on pathogenic vs. benign deletions and duplications in the human genome.
