Making Clinical Genomics a Reality – Trans Atlantic Challenges and Examples
In Partnership with Canada House
With the rapid developments in genome sequencing technologies and the characterisation of expressed human genes, has emerged great possibilities in better diagnostics, patient stratification, even therapeutics for a range of untreated conditions.
The R&D community in genomics, diagnostics and pharma are making tremendous progress towards the potential for the delivery of clinical genomics. However this is not coming without the challenges of adapting existing regulatory, reimbursement and care pathways.
Many countries are now facing the big challenge that is adopting clinical genomics as a standard of care not only for their population health benefits, but also to maintain their attractiveness to these cutting edge R&D companies.
This event will review some examples of national or regional initiatives facilitating genomics research and adoption in healthcare delivery. It will also discuss the challenges they have in common and potential solutions that can be shared.
