Review to be Held on Successes and Future of 100,000 Genomes Project
Genomics England, NHS England and The Royal Society are holding a scientific meeting at the Royal Society in Carlton House Terrace on 20 March 2019 to celebrate the successful conclusion of the 100,000 Genomes Project, which was declared finished in December last year.
The 100,000 Genomes Project sequenced whole genomes from NHS patients with rare diseases and cancers, as well as their families. These genomes have the potential to discover new diagnoses and better patient treatments.
The meeting will review progress and lessons learned so far, and look to the future of genomics around the world. It intends to bring experts in the field together, alongside researchers and project participants, and will feature workshops on transforming healthcare, data sharing, analytics and AI, ethics, trust and participants.
The meeting is free to attend, though places are limited. Register on the Royal Society’s website.
There will also be a poster session held on 20 March 2019. Individuals can submit a title, proposed abstract, author list, name of proposed presenter and authors’ institutions to the Scientific Programmes team before 9 AM on 18 February 2019. Places are submitted, and individuals must submit the above (including the text ‘Poster abstract submission’ and the meeting title in the subject line) to the scientific programmes team.
