Symposium Speaker: Katrina Goddard, PhD

Katrina Goddard is Distinguished Investigator and Associate Director of the Science Programs at Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research in Portland, OR.   Katrina is genetic epidemiologist who focuses on public health genomics and the translation of genetic testing into practice.  Prior to joining the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research in 2007, she was faculty in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics (now Population and Quantitative Health Sciences) at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH.  She was also a mid-career fellow at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Genetics & Public Health Research and Practice.  At Kaiser, she was the founding director for the NW Biobank, and she is currently a PI of Kaiser's Cancer Health Assessments Reaching Many (CHARM) study as part of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI)-funded Clinical Sequencing Evidence-Generating Research (CSER2) consortium.
