Delivering the genomic revolution in health  

Vale Inn

Talk by Dr Angela Davies, University of Manchester

Genomics is the study of an individual’s entire genetic make-up, used within healthcare to tailor treatment, make prognoses and diagnoses. Technologies now allow the rapid decoding of DNA sequence, enabling the sequencing of a genome in a matter of days, though interpretation of this data is much more complex. Dr Ang Davies, Senior Lecturer in Clinical Bioinformatics and Genomics at the University of Manchester, will describe some of these innovative technologies, the data they generate and how we are developing the skills of healthcare professionals to enable this genomic revolution.

Talk begins 6.30pm prompt at the Vale Inn, Adlington Road, Bollington.
All welcome, no charge. Arrive early to be sure of a seat.
