These are not run by Genomics England but may be of interest to healthcare professionals and scientists.
An evening’s discussion event at Cheltenham Science Festival 2017 – educational materials will be available here soon.
“The 100,000 Genomes Project is now in full swing, sequencing around 70,000 patients’ DNA codes. As genomics picks up speed, it raises a whole new set of ethical questions for Radio 4’s Inside the Ethics Committee regulars Deborah Bowman, Anneke Lucassen and Bobbie Farsides to consider. Join them and chair Vivienne Parry to decide what you’d do as a typically complex and tricky case is discussed.”
Genomics England has held a variety of events over the past two years. These include debates, public meetings and conferences. See below for details of some of our recent meetings.
View all the videos of our genomic medicine seminars.
There were two events – one for patients and the second for clinicians and other professionals. Each event included short presentations and questions and answers with the audience.
