Description

The third annual Genomic Medicine 2019 Cambridge will take place on 20th & 21st November 2019 at Murray Edwards College in Cambridge as a partnership between Biotexcel, East of Anglia Genetics Service, Clinical Genetics at the University of Cambridge & the East of England NHS Genomic Medicine Centre.The running scientific theme for this meeting like other Biotexcel genomic meetings will cover the areas where Next Generation Sequencing is used in the analysis of human disease. These topics include different disease areas where particularly promising genomic studies have been performed; large population studies; whole genome & whole exome studies; epigenomics and many other topics. We’ll also about the latest novel applications, kits and platforms that are available from commercial genomic companies.We will have very interesting talks including from Prof Willem Ouwehand the head of the NHS Blood & Transplant research group about their use of genomics; Dr Marc Tischkowitz, reader and honorary consultant will present about his interest which spans all aspects of hereditary cancer and translating genomics into clinical practice. Dr Hilary Martin, Group Leader of Human Genetics at Sanger will present about population and medical genetics of highly consanguine groups. Dr Ines Barroso, group leader of Metabolic Disease group also give us a presentation about their genomic approaches to metabolic disorders. In addition we have a very rich agenda where a host of other speakers will tell us about their latest findings in the use of genomics in research and clinical practice. You can check the agenda for updates on confirmed speakers.Audience participation will be a theme this year and we will hear the views of delegates on their preferences when it comes to using particular genomic platforms, kits, applications. If you have a question you would like to put to all the other speakers and delegates why not come along and take part?On the evening of 20th November there will be a 3-course networking dinner a local restaurant where speakers and delegates will be able to meet and and carry on discussions in a more informal setting.ACADEMIC POSTER SUBMISSIONS: We welcome academic poster presentation at our events.
