Public talk: The Welsh Plan to Transform Patient Care with Genomics

8th November 2018, 7pm, Large Chemistry Lecture Theatre, Cardiff University, Cardiff CF10 3AQT

Join us to hear a panel of expert speakers from Genomics Partnership Wales (GPW) and The 100,000 Genomes Project in Wales talk on The Welsh Plan to Transform Patient Care with Genomics.

The Welsh Government’s ambitious plan, the ‘Genomics for Precision Medicine Strategy’, aims to ensure everyone in Wales has access to cutting-edge genetic and genomic testing. The plan aims to make Wales an international leader in precision medicine, with experts working closely together to make genomics and genetics part of everyday medicine.

The FREE lecture, part of Cardiff University School of Medicine’s Public Understanding of Science in Health series 2018-19, will highlight the recent progress being made in genomics across Public Health and NHS services, as well as Wales’ contribution to the landmark 100,000 Genomes Project.

Patient and Public Involvement is also a priority for GPW and the talk will explain how the public and patients can get involved.

There will also be an opportunity to talk with the speakers afterwards.

No booking required.

This talk has been organised by Wales Gene Park in collaboration with Genomics Partnership Wales.
