The 100,000 Genomes Project – Personalised Medicine and commercial opportunities
Wed 6th July 2016
The largest national sequencing project of its kind in the world, the 100,000 Genomes Project is transforming the prospects for personalised medicine by linking NHS patients’ whole genome sequence with their medical records and making this available to both academic and commercial researchers.
This unprecedented study of cancer and rare diseases will transform research, diagnosis and treatment options. It will also kick-start a UK genomics industry, and is set-up to make sure an unprecedented level of NHS-Industry collaboration brings rapid implementation of academic and commercial discoveries.
This event, co-hosted by Southampton Science Park and the Wessex Life Science Cluster, is aimed at those in the life sciences industry wanting to understand more about the 100,000 Genomes Project and the opportunities it will bring over the coming few years.
Attendees will hear from Dr Catherine Mercer, (Wessex Genomics Medicine Centre), about how genomics will change medical care, and from Paul Jones (Genomics England) about the commercial opportunities arising, including bioinformatics, data analysis, treatments, diagnostic devices and medicines.
This event is free to attend and will include a finger buffet, drinks and informal networking.
Sign up today here.
