Genomics England Research Conference 2019
November 4 2019 @ 8:30 am - 7:30 pm
Genomics England Research Conference
The power of 100,000 whole genomes, presented for the first time by clinical, academic and industry researchers.
The inaugural Genomics England Research Conference will showcase world-leading research that is being done with the data from the 100,000 Genomes Project.
100,000 whole genomes have now been sequenced from NHS patients to harness the potential of genomic medicine. Commercial and academic research is integral to this effort and the conference will provide a meeting of the minds for GeCIP and Discovery Forum members, 100,000 Genomes Project participants and Genomics England staff.
The day will begin with a plenary talk by Professor David Goldstein, Director of the Institute for Genomic Medicine at Columbia University and Chief Adviser for Genomics at AstraZeneca. This will be followed with concurrent sessions of research talks selected from abstracts, submitted by GeCIP and Discovery Forum members. These panels will be integrated with discussion panels, debates, stories from participants, as well as clinics and demos on the Genomics England Research Environment. Lunch will be provided for attendees and results from the poster competition will be announced at the closing plenary, before the networking drinks reception at the end of the day.
