Genetic Counselors
Many of us have questions about genetic disorders:
"My doctor told me that I will have a blood test in my second trimester of pregnancy that can detect if my baby has problems. This test is called maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein screening. What is maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein screening? What can it tell me?" Answer...
"My son has a rare genetic disorder . Do you know any other patients with this disorder that I could talk to?" Answer...
"Many of my family members have had cancer and I am worried about getting cancer myself. Is the cancer in my family inherited ? What are my chances of getting cancer and what types of screening should I do?" Answer...
Where do we go to find the answers?
Genetic counselors are health professionals who are trained to help families understand genetic disorders and to provide information and support to those families. They may also serve as patient advocates by referring individuals or families to local services that can be of assistance. Genetic research is a powerful tool for treating medical conditions, but it is still a new tool. Many people whose families are affected by genetics disorders don't understand how it will affect their lives. Even genetic researchers and doctors don't fully understand how genes cause all genetic disorders. Genetic counselors work with doctors and families to help families get the information they need to understand the disorder.

    Careers in Physical Anthropology
    Academic Positions
    There are many academic careers for appropriately trained physical anthropologists. The most common and traditional job openings are found in anthropology departments in colleges and universities. University departments of genetics, zoology, and biology also offer potential employment. So do community colleges and professional schools. Many schools of medicine rely on biological anthropologists to teach the gross anatomy of the human body to medical and paramedical students. Currently, around one in eight American physical anthropologists has some professional affiliation with a medical school, usually in a department of anatomy. A detailed appreciation of the range of jobs held by physical anthropologists can be gained by studying the membership directory of the AAPA, published every December in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology.

    February 24 OK, so genetic engineers aren't at the point where they can make pills and capsules grow in place of corn kernels, but scientists have engineered corn and other plants (as well as animals) to produce pharmaceuticals. In the Connections section, you can read more about this work and the controversy that surrounds itparticularly when crop plants like corn are involved. National Engineers Week, February 20-26 Engineering is the art of applying scientific and mathematical principles, experience, judgment, and common sense to create or develop new products that benefit people and solve problems. Engineers search for better, less expensive ways to use the forces and materials of nature to meet tough challenges as people encounter them. There are many fields of work within engineering; one of the newerand growingbranches is genetic engineering. What exactly is genetic engineering? Is it really something different from the domestication and breeding of plants and animals that humans have done through the ages? Who does this work? The answers to these questions are not as easy as you might think.

    Non-Academic Careers in Physical Anthropology
    Text by the Career Development Committee of the AAPA
    The links I have inserted are not necessarily definitive, nor endorsed by the American Association of Physical Anthropologists; they take you to sites that help illustrate the topic, that's all. Caveat emptor!
    The purpose of this brochure is to inform physical anthropology graduate students of career opportunities in non-academic settings. In a concern with the future professional careers of students completing their graduate educations in physical anthropology (particularly at the doctoral level), the American Association of Physical Anthropologists has established a standing committee devoted to career development. This brochure is one of the Committee's educational efforts to inform the student constituency of the Association as to the nature and diversity of professional careers in addition to those in anthropology departments in colleges and universities. There are many academic careers for appropriately trained physical anthropologists. In addition to the most traditional, that of faculty member of an anthropology department, they involve academic affiliations with community colleges and a number of different non-anthropology academic units within four year colleges and universities. These include medical schools; indeed, currently one in eight American physical anthropologists has some formal professional affiliation with a medical school, most frequently in departments of anatomy. Departments of genetics, zoology, and biological sciences are also logical academic units in which one might find physical anthropologists.

With the above question asked in a middle or high school classroom, discussion now begins on what lies ahead in the future of our young people. They will give you such answers as; I want to be a doctor, lawyer, engineer, rap star, nurse, hair stylist or any number of other choices. Through all of our discussions I have never heard them choose a field from the genetics or bioscience areas. Education throughout the splendor of its entirety still has a difficult time exposing young people to all of the unique career areas that the world has to offer. Statistics show that the fastest growing career areas today are coming from these two particular areas of study. Life as we know it, is constantly changing. First we had the industrial revolution, which at the time dramatically change the use of hand tools and handmade items. Workers became more productive, which meant more items were produced.

    Genetic Counselors provide information to individuals and families who have questions about genetic conditions or birth defects. They also help those receiving the information to process and understand it. To support individuals and families as they adapt and cope with genetic conditions, genetic counselors integrate short-term psychological counseling with their knowledge of the principles of human genetics. Most genetic counselors hold a master's degree in genetic counseling. Their graduate education involves courses in the hard sciences and the social sciences, as well as in bioethics, public policy and health education. Some work in prenatal settings, some in pediatric settings and still others in adult genetic clinics. For more information contact the National Society of Genetic Counselors , (610) 872-7608 or try

    Recent successes in gene sequencing will have a profound influence on research and development in genetics. Opportunities will open up in areas as diverse as target discovery and clinical testing. BY PETER GWYNNE
    T he successes of recent months in sequencing the genomes of humans and other organisms have changed forever the nature of research in genetics. They have opened up opportunities for life scientists to apply the sequences to the creation of products for the pharmaceutical and other industries. Scientists with skills in bioinformatics top the wish lists of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, closely followed by individuals capable of working on target identification and validation. Scientists qualified in several disciplines can benefit from the new opportunities. Companies are recruiting cell biologists, combinatorial chemists, medicinal chemists and, particularly, life scientists who possess sophisticated skills in computing. Not every well-qualified life scientist can or should undertake the new tasks open to industry. Recruiters emphasize that applicants should show themselves ready and able to appreciate the differences between industrial and academic research. They must realize that industry focuses on products rather than publications, and that nearly all its research occurs in team situations.

    38. SCIENCE Professional Network: Focus On Genetics
    Join us for an online Career Workshop on careers in Genetics, from March 6 throughApril 6. Our guest host will be Vicki Rosen of the Genetics Institute, Inc.
    sk people making a living in the world of genetics about career prospects today, and you'll hear much the same response: "Genetics is a hot field," said Vicki Rosen, of the Genetics Institute, Inc. in Cambridge, Massachusetts. "This is a very exciting time to do research in genetics. Important discoveries are being made about genes, and we're getting deep insights into gene expression. These are translating into products." Genetics is a field older than Mendel and other early attempts to explain inherited variation. And it's as new and vibrant as the Human Genome Project (HGP) and sizzling hot career fields like genomics and functional genomics that the HGP spawned. Genetics comes in all flavors, with all of the cross-disciplinary involvement that led Rosen into the field in the early 1980s. Rosen didn't plan her career exactly that way. Academic training, research interests, and industry needs came together at the right time, she said. Rosen's Ph.D. in cell biology and physiology from the University of Connecticut led in 1984 to the Genetics Institute, Inc. (GI) and work on bone morphogenic proteins (BMPs) and genes that code for BMPs. These proteins induce bone formation, and have clinical potential. The group's successes included isolation of BMPs and BMP genes. Rosen moved progressively up the career ladder from staff scientist to principal scientist, senior scientist, and group director. Today she directs a 15-member GI group that works on the genetics and identifies potential clinical applications of BMPs. GI is a wholly owned subsidiary of American Home Products Corporation, which uses recombinant DNA and other technologies. GI's newest product, rhIL-11, is a platelet growth factor, cleared for marketing late in 1997, that stimulates platelet production in cancer chemotherapy patients.

    Genetic engineering: spectacular science or playing God?
    In this edition of Archimedes we are joining world-wide celebrations of the 50th anniversary of Crick and Watson’s discovered DNA and will be uncovering why their efforts are worth celebrating so many years down the line. The key to getting the most out of this issue will be to read "The story of DNA" on page 11. This article will help you to understand the basics of DNA and sets the scene for the rest of the articles in the magazine, which include an in-depth look at:
    • the Human Genome Project (on page 17) which is a project that has captured the attention of the world for a number of years;
    • a look at the debate on genetic engineering and cloning (on page 20);
    • a discussion on the ethics of cloning (on page 26) which is a matter of serious and heated debate around the globe; and
    • a short look at how our genes and lifestyle play a part in whether or not we are likely to develop diseases or not (on page 28).
    So far, the advances in science, and particularly in the human sciences, that have resulted from the discovery of the double helix are astounding, but predictions are that this is just the tip of the iceberg and that there are much more exciting times ahead.
