In conjunction with the Golden Helix Institute of Biomedical Research the Wales Gene Park is organising a Pharmacogenomics symposium in Cardiff.

These symposia have been held on a regular basis across Europe but this is the first time one has taken place in the UK. The aims of these events are: (a) to provide timely updates on the field of pharmacogenomics and personalised medicine to the local biomedical scientists and healthcare providers, (b) to inform them on the application of pharmacogenomics in various areas of medical practice, such as psychiatric disorders, oncology, cardiology, and (c) to bring together faculty members from universities and research institutes from the local scientific arena working in the field of pharmacogenomics in order to initiate collaborative projects in this field to the benefit of society.
