Leadership Seminar – Clinical Genomics – From Exciting Technologies to Clinical Adoption

10:00 - 18:30

EMBL-EBI, Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge CB10 1SD
28 March 2018

With the rapid developments in genome sequencing technologies and the characterisation of expressed human genes, has emerged the exciting field of clinical genomics. Clinical genomics could revolutionize the way medicine is delivered by allowing (i) a better characterisation of diseases we currently don’t diagnose; (ii) earlier diagnostics of lethal conditions; and (iii) bring the concept of patient stratification in order to better understand risks and predict drug responses. But as with all successful revolutions this can’t happen in one day and the tremendous potential health benefits must be balanced with the many barriers to adoption in terms of adapting existing regulatory, reimbursement and care systems to accommodate adoption of these technologies.  

This event will review some areas in which clinical genomics can have a significant impact including rare diseases and cancer and will discuss how to ensure these technologies reach the widest patient audience possible.

It is aimed at anybody from academia or industry with an interest in genomics and its impact on healthcare delivery.
