San Francisco and Luxembourg City, May 20, 2011 Dr. Jeffrey M. Trent, F.A.C.M.G., a nationally recognized leader in the science of genetics related to cancer, has been appointed Foreign Trade Counselor of Luxembourg in the United States.

Both non-profit biomedical research institutes study the genetic origins of human disease and how to quickly bring new treatments to patients.

Dr. Trent holds a Ph.D. in Genetics from the University of Arizona, Tucson. Before TGen and VARI, Dr. Trent served as the founding Scientific Director of the U.S. National Institutes of Health's National Human Genome Research Institute. He has held faculty positions at the University of Arizona, Arizona State University, the University of Michigan and Johns Hopkins University. He has authored or co-authored more than 300 scientific publications, and delivered hundreds of invited lectures.

He has received numerous honors and awards, and has sat on the editorial boards of a dozen scientific publications. He specializes in developing and integrating novel tools based on the Human Genome Project, that help provide information related to the diagnosis and treatment of human cancers and other complex diseases.
