Genomic Medicine is currently revolutionising healthcare across the globe. Led by the internationally recognised paediatric physician, neurologist, and clinical geneticist Professor Kathryn North AM, this grand round seminar will explore what is being done to harness genomic technology on the local, national and international stage, separating real outcomes from the hype, and discussing how a collaborative ‘whole of systems approach’ is required to maximise patient outcomes.
Key note lecture:

• Anne Baxendale, Senior Genetic Counsellor, Paediatric and Reproductive Genetics Unit at the Women and Children’s Hospital.
