BioConnect Ireland - Harnessing the Power of Genomics

Posted on almost 2 years ago by Laurentina Kennedy




Genomics has the potential to radically transform disease understanding, diagnosis and treatment.  However, harnessing this potential raises a number of ethical, legal and social issues. This event will help inform clinicians, researchers (both in academic and industry) and the broader Irish Life Sciences community on the significant opportunities, potential pitfalls and international practices in this field.
