About the event

Join us at Lifebit's upcoming webinar to hear from the global pioneers who are challenging the lack of diversity in genomics research.

Genomic studies are celebrated for the transformative impact on human health and wellbeing, with recent examples during the pandemic demonstrating the value of this area of science. It is widely known, however, that the limitation in diverse genomic data and research results in inequalities in access to genomic and personalised medicine, largely affecting communities that are traditionally underserved.

We will be joined by some of the world's most innovative pioneers in genomic data research and technology.
