Response to Science and Technology Committee Report on Genomics and Genome Editing in the NHS

The House of Commons Science and Technology Committee has today (20 April) published its report on Genomics and Genome Editing in the NHS.

In response, Sir John Chisholm, Executive Chair said:

“I welcome the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee Report on Genomics and Genome Editing, published today. The report is a thorough and thoughtful exploration of the tremendous opportunities that genomics offers to the UK – its people, its health service and its economy.

“The Committee also recognises the huge strides that we have made – placing the UK at the leading edge of genomics discovery. As the report stresses, now is the time for the UK to overcome remaining challenges and capitalise on its global leadership − delivering genomic medicine in the NHS, improving patient outcomes and realising economic opportunities across the world.”
