    Our knowledge of the underlying genetic basis of many endocrinological disorders has expanded greatly with widespread application of genomic analysis. Research regarding a wide variety of endocrine conditions, as well as the diagnosis and care of patients with such disorders is now greatly influenced by the results of genomic analysis. Genetics in Medicine strives to be the “go-to” journal for matters that lie at the intersection of Genetics and Endocrinology. Recent publications in GIM demonstrate the breadth of endocrine conditions that are informed by genomic analysis, including short stature, abnormalities of sexual development, pituitary deficiency, hypogonadism, infertility and diabetes. Turn to Genetics in Medicine for up to date manuscripts that impact the care of endocrine patients and the pursuit of endocrine research.

    As genomic analysis becomes more affordable and our understanding of genomic influences on disease becomes more robust, the prospect of applying genomic information in the public health setting becomes feasible. There currently exist calls for identifying those in the general population with highly penetrant mutations that strongly predispose to serious but actionable conditions for purposes of prevention. Already there are laboratories marketing such tests to individuals throughout the US. The prospect of applying genomics in the public health setting is exciting - but many important questions remain to be answered. Such questions range from determining unbiased estimates of penetrance for well-studied disease genes, assessing patient understanding of the results of such screening and ultimately determining the clinical utility and costs of implementing public health genomics. Just as it has been in the realm of clinical medicine, Genetics in Medicine will be at the forefront of public health genomics, providing the definitive forum for practitioners and researchers as we seek to improve public health through judicious application of emerging knowledge and technology.
