Joyce speaks with Ellen Matloff, geneticist, about her newest venture, MyGeneCounsel.
Ellen Matloff, MS, CGC is the President and CEO of My Gene Counsel. Ellen is the founder and former director of the Cancer Genetic Counseling Program at Yale School of Medicine and a lead plaintiff in the 2013 United States Supreme Court gene patent case. Ellen has authored more than 50 scientific publications in the field, is an established educator, lecturer and media spokesperson and has received national awards for her ongoing patient advocacy efforts.
She was the 2013 honoree of ArtBra New Haven for her work with hereditary breast cancer, and particularly for helping to challenge the validity of patenting the genes for breast cancer.
Ellen’s area of special interest is BRCA I and BRCA II mutations, which vastly increase the probability of a carrier developing breast and/or ovarian cancer. For the past 18 years, she has been dedicated to patient and provider issues in cancer genetic counseling, and the impact of genetic patents on patients and clinical practice.
Ellen was one of the lead plaintiffs in Association of Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics, the landmark case before the U.S. Supreme Court, which challenged the validity of patenting naturally-occurring substances from the human body. Myriad Genetics had patented the BRCA I and II genes, and held the monopoly on testing. This effectively froze research, and made necessary testing unaffordable for many patients, leaving them to make huge decisions about their treatment without vital information. Ellen worked tirelessly for the interests of breast cancer patients and their families.

Few women can lead a family business in a male dominated industry like tile related manufacturing. Fewer can balance grace, humility and ingenuity while putting family first. Lisa Schaffer nee Clear, now President of FinPan Inc. and T.Clear Corporation, has done it all: even patenting a new solution.
ClearPath is the result of the family's need for accessibility. Lisa's niece Amy has Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) aka brittle bones-leaving her confined to a wheelchair. Mother of 2, Amy could not use and enjoy the family summer home with the bathroom not accessible. At 88, Lisa's mother struggled with a curb step and extended shower standing. With no available solution, they invented one. Now the family home has an accessible shower and the industry has a beautiful solution that doesn't require costly floor joist modifications.
The youngest of 4, Lisa, her husband, and both sons all work for FinPan. Lisa’s family has always had a family business. Her father oversaw her grandfather’s Drywall & Plastering business, while her mother started a Laundromat and Dry Cleaners where Lisa learned to read and write starting at three years old. She and her brother Steve, who also now works for FinPan companies, would watch them as they developed the product in her father’s friend garage, learning to mix concrete. Fin Pan Inc. was born around the kitchen table, forged from the strength of family.
The Senate today rejected an amendment to the immigration overhaul bill that would have increased border security before providing a pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million undocumented residents in the United States. Sen. Chuck Grassley called the process flawed and said that before handling those who are already here, measures should be taken to ensure more don’t come into the country illegally. We talk to The Hill Reporter Ramsey Cox.
Coming up later in the program, the Supreme Court has declared that the human genome cannot be patented, at least as it occurs in nature. In what might be something of the Court trying to find a middle ground, justices did say something they create out of gene isolation could be patented making it a win for Myriad genetics – one of the players in this case – because they created a synthetic form of the genes. We will talk to Andrew Torrance, Law professor at the University of Kansas.
Then, there’s a little-covered battle over student loan interest rates playing out in the final weeks leading up to a July 1 deadline. That’s when a prior Congressional agreement on rates expires leaving rates to double adding to the ever increases student loan debt load. Republicans want a new agreement that leaves rates more amenable to free market rates while Democrats are insisting on something more static. For more on this we now have Dylan Matthews, Reporter for the Washington Post where he focuses on taxes, budgets, and other elements of US economic and fiscal policy and currently contributes to the Post’s Wonkblog
Part 1: Boston Marathon Bombing
We will get word from Boston to get an update on multiple explosions near the marathon killing at least 2 and injuring dozens others.
Part 2: Supreme Court hears case asking whether human genes are patentable
This morning the Supreme Court heard arguments in AMP v. Myriad in which they are being asked if a coproration can patent a human gene they extracted. The case wll likely have huge significance regarding future research into human DNA and the pursuit of cures.
Part 3: Congress Repeals Major Tenets of STOCK Act on Congressional Insider Trading
Although politicos everywhere are talking about immigration and gun control legislation this week, little is being said about one piece of legislation that was quietly passed by both houses at the end of last week and signed by President Obama only hours ago. the legislation repeals some crucial parts of a year old law, known as the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act, or “STOCK” (S. 716), which required everyone from the president, down to congressional staffers, to disclose and post records of their investments online.
Passed and signed by President Obama one year ago in order to restore public trust in the federal government and prevent insider trading, some elements faced opposition from those claiming that such disclosures are dangerous to high end political staffers.
Today, part of the act was walked back to exclude staff level employees from the disclosure requirement. The changes do not include Senators, representatives, and executive staff.

On tonight's episode of Liberal Dan radio I focus on DNA. Plant DNA. Human DNA. And if we have time, I will go back into some of the recent developments into the Kate Hunt case.
Whe owns your DNA? I have already discussed how corporations are trying to patent your DNA (when what they really should be patenting is the process to find that specific gene). Now, government believes that it has the authority to keep your DNA it collects in perpetuity. Something just doesn't seem right about that.
Then in ruling that seems in complete contradiction to the previous one, the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Monsanto and is treating corn seeds as if they were mp3s.
That, words of redneck wisdom, headlines, tweet of the week and more, tongiht on Liberal Dan Radio: talk from the left, that's right.
