Are you a young person interested in finding out more about genomics and health, or affected by a rare or genetic condition? Join us for Young People’s Genomics Café! These events are aimed at those aged 16 to 25 and are run by Wales Gene Park with Genomics Partnership Wales. May’s café will provide the opportunity to ‘Meet the Professional’ working in the area of genetics and genomics, with relaxed, expert talks including:
- Meet the Researcher working on rare, genetic conditions – Dr Laura Thomas, Swansea University

- Meet the Genetic Counsellor – Louise Gillies, & Gabriela Juma, All Wales Medical Genomics Service
- Meet the Doctor specialising in Genetics/Genomics – Dr Ollie Murch, All Wales Medical Genomics Service
The café is a relaxed opportunity to find out about new advances in genomic medicine in Wales and a chance for young people to meet, come together, and let us know how we can better support those affected by rare or genetic conditions. The cafe is FREE to join via Zoom, but you will need to register via Eventbrite to receive the joining link.
