Past event

The first in the new series examined the future of biobanking. In her talk New forms of biobanking: the “measured man”, held on 7 July, Prof Bartha Knoppers, Director of the Centre of Genomics and Policy at McGill University, lead us in an exploration of a move from static, one-off genetic testing to continuous, lifelong genome sequencing and analysis to underpin a revolution in medical research and healthcare.

The event was completely booked up well in advance and we were delighted to welcome a near capacity crowd to the Hughes Hall venue on the day.
