Biology in Action: Vivienne Parry on 100,000 genomes and beyond

We are delighted to welcome scientist, journalist, broadcaster and Head of Engagement for Genomics England Vivienne Parry to Biology in Action on March 1st 2019 in London. The 100,000 genomes project is an ambitious new venture set to transform the face of healthcare. The project will sequence 100,000 genomes from around 70,000 people with rare diseases and their families, as well as cancer patients in a quest to find the underlying genetic causes of disease. It is the largest national sequencing project in the world and has huge implications for the way we diagnose and treat disease. Vivienne will discuss the science behind the project and the implications for translating the results into the clinic in an unmissable session. This really is cutting-edge biology to inspire the next generation.
