Angela Douglas

Scientific Director for Genetics at Liverpool Women's NHS Foundation Trust and Chair of the British Society for Genetic Medicine (BSGM).

"The 100,000 Genome Project is welcomed by the BSGM as an exciting and unprecedented development that offers the UK the opportunity of being a leader in the field of Genomic Medicine. The challenge of the project will be to embed its outcomes into routine health practice. The genetics community looks forward to working towards meeting that challenge. The project has the potential to transform the future of healthcare.  It could improve the prediction and prevention of disease, enable new and more precise diagnostic tests, and allow personalisation of drugs and other treatments to specific genetic variants."
