Health futures: genomics and beyond brought together industry, NHS clinical, scientific and policy professionals, patient groups and charities to explore the future of genomics and personalised healthcare.

Over 100 delegates joined us in Cambridge to hear from Prof Dame Sally Davies (Chief Medical Officer for England), Prof Sue Hill (Chief Scientific Officer), Dr Robert C. Green (Director, Genomes2People), Carla Deakin (NICE Office for Market Access), Claus Nielsen (Data for Good Foundation) and many more. We also saw the transformational potential of four health-related technologies pitched to us in our interactive session – biosensors, digital health, 3D printing for drugs and ctDNA testing technologies.

Healthy futures: genomics and beyond included parallel sessions on ‘Health technologies and the human factor’ and ‘Innovations into practice in the NHS’.
