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 free public forum will discuss the challenges of bringing DNA into 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.
