DNA in medicine forum event
October 24, 2016
Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance is presenting a free public forum on 30 November,
'DNA in medicine: The challenges and promise of genomics'.
Wednesday 30 November, 6.30-8pm
Walter and Eliza Hall Institute (1G Royal Pde, Parkville)
We can now examine an individual’s complete set of genetic information (the genome) to identify changes that may impact on health. Genomic medicine offers enormous potential to
improve diagnosis and provide more personalised care for patients.
This public forum will discuss the challenges of bringing DNA in to healthcare, and how the potential of genomics is being realised now and into the future.
Presented by the Melbourne Genomics Health Alliance, the forum will be chaired by award-winning journalist Paul Barclay from ABC Radio National.
The event will be followed by light refreshments and an opportunity for informal discussion.
