Genomics of Rare Disease
March 25 @ 12:30 pm - March 27 @ 2:00 pm
Wellcome Genome Campus is holding a 3 day conference on rare disease, presenting a blend of genomic science and clinical medicine.
The programme features the latest findings related to the genomic basis of rare diseases, providing powerful insights into human biology, disease mechanisms and therapeutic approaches. As genomic sequencing becomes more available in the hospital setting, we also examine the opportunities and challenges for clinical practice.
This conference provides an excellent multi-disciplinary forum for clinicians (consultants and trainees), research and clinical scientists, bioinformaticians and technology developers interested in understanding the impact of recent advances in genomics and technology on the care of patients with rare diseases.
Topics will include:
- What’s new in rare disease?
- Developmental genetics
- Functional genomics
- Beyond the coding genome
- New therapeutic approaches
