Genomic Medicine 2018 Cambridge

December 5 - December 6

Genomic Medicine 2018 Cambridge

5th & 6th December 2018

The second annual Genomic Medicine 2018 Cambridge will place on 5th & 6th December 2018 at Murray Edwards College in Cambridge and again as a partnership between Biotexcel, East of Anglia Genetics Service, Clinical Genetics at the University of Cambridge & the East of England NHS Genomic Medicine Centre.

The running scientific theme for this meeting like other Biotexcel genomic meetings will cover the areas where Next Generation Sequencing is used in the analysis of human disease.  These topics will  include different disease areas where particularly promising genomic studies have been performed; large population studies; whole genome & whole exome studies; epigenomics and many other topics.  In this meeting we will also hear from commercial genomic companies, whether those that currently have genomic solutions on the market, or those that are spin-outs or in the research or earlier phases.

We will have some great names speaking at this event including Professor Mike Parker (Genomic Ethics).  We will hear from the opinion leaders in Genomics in a relaxed casual setting and network with the speakers as well as with other fellow delegates.  On the evening of 5th December a networking dinner will take place at a local restaurant where speakers and delegates will be able to meet and and carry on discussions in an even more informal setting.

NETWORKING: in addition to the excellent science, Genomic Medicine 2018 Cambridge will allow delegates to interact with each other during networking events. These networking opportunities will include:

  • Introductory networking session on Day 1
  • Panel debate
  • Complimentary Drinks Reception pending sponsorship
