Today I'm talking about genomics with the man who headed the Human Genome Project Dr. Francis Collins.  He is currently the director of the U.S. National Institutes of Health.  On the podcast Dr. Collins explains how genomics works, how it is leading to breakthroughs in our understanding of many diseases, and leaps in early detection and targeted treatment of them.  He also discusses the limits of genomics and some of the ethical and regulatory issues that have arisen from it.

If you enjoyed my conversation with Dr. Francis Collins, you can learn more about the Human Genome Project by visiting www.genome.gov and you can learn about some of the exciting new research going on at the National Institutes of Health at www.nih.gov.  Follow Dr. Collins on Twitter at @NIHDirector.
