As part of University Hospitals Bristol's Bristol Healthy City Week 2016 event, the West of England NHS Genomic Medicine Centre (WEGMC) is running a seminar on Friday, 21 October from 9:30am to 10:30am in the Bristol Heart Institute Seminar Room.
The GMC is a partnership of 20 healthcare organisations in the West of England region, led by UH Bristol, and aims to make personalised treatments more mainstream for people with cancer and rare diseases. The WEGMC project went live earlier this year and is part of the national 100,000 Genomes Project.
Part of Bristol Healthy City Week's vision is having integrated health services that champion preventative medicine and whole person care. Learning more about genomes can help in identifying the causes of genetic diseases and developing individualised care.
Dr Andrew Mumford, clinical director of the WEGMC will be providing an introduction to the project, an update on the GMC's progress and how clinicians and patients can get involved. There will also be a Q&A session following the presentation.
