编者按：第 11 届亚太人类遗传学大会（APCHG 2015）于 9 月 16-18 日在越南河内完美落幕。本届大会以“Genetics and Genomics: The Path to Translational Medicine”为主题，旨在为参会人员提供一个讨论人类遗传学进展的平台。本次大会上，400 份 AME 旗下 Annals of Translational Medicine（简称 ATM）杂志会议专辑，800 份 Translational Pediatrics（简称 TP）杂志两期特刊宣传页被放入会议资料包，送达到 400 余位参会人员的手中。来自澳大利亚 Queensland Institute of Medical Research 的 Prof. Grant W. Montgomery 在本次大会中就“The path towards translational medicine for reproductive disease”一题作了精彩的报告。Prof.Montgomery 会后到 AME 展位参观和了解旗下杂志，小编也荣幸能邀请到他接受我们的专访。
First could you please briefly introduce yourself to our audience, including your research interests?
Today you gave an excellent speech on “The path towards translational medicine for reproductive disease”, could you give a summary on the main points of your report?
What’s your initial aim to choose this interesting topic? What shall we expect and learn from the report?
Just now you mentioned a lot of researches you’ve been working on, and we know you are a group leader of your molecular epidemiology laboratory, would you like to share with us any recent studies and latest progress?
As you mentioned, you have been working on your research area for long. It maybe interesting/challenging on the research way, I guess. Would you like to share any stories with our readers?
