An informal and insightful interview with Jorge Sequeiros. Jorge Sequeiros is recognised as one of the most prominent figures in Portuguese Medical Genetics over the last 30 years. He is a medical geneticist and Emeritus Professor at the University of Porto. He made important contributions to the national development of neurogenetics, by establishing medical genetics as a field of study in Portugal, and advancing the ethical, societal, and regulatory aspects of genetic testing and genetic information. One of the most important steps of his career was the creation of the Center for Predictive and Preventive Genetics (CGPP) at IBMC, a center that provides community services in the areas of genetic testing and genetic counselling.
