Webinar: A Look Into The Future of Genomics

Join us on Thursday 21st April for the webinar ‘A Look Into The Future of Genomics’ – a chance to hear the latest developments in genomic medicine in the North of England, and contribute to the development of the Digital DNA Project.

The Digital DNA project, delivered by AHLC Solutions and Healthcare Innovation Consortium (HIC) in partnership with North West and North East & Yorkshire GMSAs, will generate a business case for NHS England/Improvement Transformational Genomic Medicine plans and position the North of England as the region to begin our journey to becoming world leaders in this space.

Our key speakers will give an overview of the vision for genomic medicine and a North of England perspective of the discovery that is happening in the region.

Throughout the webinar, we will be asking a series of interactive questions and answers to really gain the value of your knowledge and understanding.
