Scientific innovation and social change are driving us rapidly towards a future where personalised healthcare is the norm. What will this future look like and how will we get there?
As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, the PHG Foundation's annual conference will explore exciting new opportunities arising from genomics and the more distant prospects ahead. As we move beyond genomics to integrate other innovative technologies for healthcare, join us in examining the practical and policy challenges of delivering a healthier future.
