A unique international meeting, Clinical Genomes Scotland, will take place at the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh on Monday 6th October 2014. The meeting is organised by Professors Nick Hastie, Tim Aitman and Mary Porteous (University of Edinburgh and NHS Lothian) and will address how the clinical community should deal with the increasing availability of genome sequencing, how Scotland will rise to the challenge raised by the UK 100,000 genomes project, and how genome technology and information can best be applied to healthcare.
The meeting has a programme of exceptional UK and international speakers and is anticipated to influence the direction of genomics in clinical practice for Scotland, the UK and in other administrations with an interest in clinical genome sequencing.
Registration is now open to all clinicians, researchers, healthcare commissioners and policy setters with an interest in genetic/genomic research: http://edin.ac/1uJm2nj
