Description

How can your DNA help to diagnose and treat disease?

Find out how the Genomic Generation has arrived with affordable, rapid DNA analysis revolutionising healthcare.

The forum will discuss how precision medicine is enabling doctors to analyse a person’s genetic DNA makeup and target treatments based on their specific needs.

Our panel will explain DNA testing, gene editing technology, plus demonstrate a unique zebra fish model for researching genetic disease. And all presented in Plain English!

Join us for an evening of fascinating insights into how genomics is changing healthcare – now and for future generations.
