The Genomics England Research Seminar series is a season of events held to demonstrate the best research from Genomics England and our partners. They started in October 2018, and are monthly, free-to-attend evenings of talks presented by GECIP members on the latest research being performed on the 100,000 Genomes Project data from our academic community (GECIP), commercial partners (Discovery Forum), COVID analysis and Genomics England research on other cohorts.
This month's speakers are:
Tzehow Mok, a consultant neurologist and senior clinical fellow at the NHS National Prion Unit and MRC Prion Unit at UCL, and at East Surrey Hospital. He will be presenting his talk "Evaluating the penetrance of PRNP gene variants by example", which is an interesting study of prion disease published last year in Viruses.
Rachel Lennon and David Sherwood will be jointly presenting on their talk: "A basement membrane discovery pipeline uncovers network complexity, new regulators, and human disease associations" This is an international study, published in Science Advances, involving participant data from the 100,000 Genomes Project and including animal models to analyse the impact of extracellular structures.
About the research seminars
The seminars will be held on the last Tuesday of each month at 2-3:30pm. These will be online sessions open to everyone and free to attend, we hope to have representation from across the GECIP, Discovery Forum and 100,000 Genomes Project participants as well as anyone else who would be interested in joining.
For updates on the seminars including announcements and speakers please follow the GECIP team Twitter. You can watch all previous Research Seminars on the Genomics England YouTube channel.
If you would like to present your research from the Genomics England Research Environment at one of these events please get in touch with the GECIP team at [email protected] and if you intend to publish on this research please include this so that we can publicise your paper on our Publications page.
