About the speaker

Dr. Konrad Platzer is a clinical expert and medical doctor with a specialty in Human Genetics. He currently serves as the head of panel diagnostics, the head of diagnostics and counseling for Hereditary and Ovarian Cancer and as a genetic counselor at the Institute of Human Genetics at the University Hospital in Leipzig. His main interests lie in NGS diagnostics, clinical genetics, and epilepsy genetics as well as in teaching medical students. The Institute of Human Genetics at the University Hospital of Leipzig has a research focus on genetics of Epilepsy, developmental delay and Cystic Fibrosis. Members of the group were the first to implement NGS panels in epilepsy diagnostics. As of now, 800 NGS panels with a variety of medical indications and over 200 trio exomes of syndromic or non-syndromic patients are analyzed every year. The Institute is one of the establishing members of the international Consortium to Systematically Elucidate the Genetics of Neurodevelopmental Disorders (GND). The development of the varvis platform has always been driven by the needs of clinicians and has been performed in close collaboration with the Institute of Human Genetics in Leipzig.
