The Winter School on Fetal Diagnosis organised by the ERN-ITHACA aims to address a learning gap in fetal phenotyping, genetic analysis, and data interpretation. As a single-day course it will include basic lectures and in depth-workshops on phenotyping, prenatal genomic testing, and the implications for genetic counselling. To finalize, the program will bridge the addressed fields with interdisciplinary case discussions.
The course is open to specialists and specialists in training in the fields of clinical and laboratory genetics, bioinformatics, obstetrics, pathology with a special interest in prenatal medicine.
The program gathers excellent scientists from ITHACA affiliates and collaborating partners in the fields of fetal-maternal-medicine, fetal imaging, fetal pathology, and human genetics so that participants benefit entirely from the vast expertise.
The Winter School is adjunct to the “Best of” annual meeting of the French Society of Fetal pathology (SoFFoet – http://soffoet.fr/) on Wednesday 07th December and students are invited also to join.
Main topics addressed
This first course provides an overview of the subject matter and methodological principles in the complex field of prenatal medicine. It includes an introduction to HPO and its application on fetal phenotypes, opportunities and limitations of fetal imaging and fetal pathology as well as prenatal clinical genetics in the area of genomic medicine.
