Event description
The Genomics Revolution: Part of the BGS Open Science Lecture Series

About this Event

Since the publication of the first human genome in 2001, a ‘genomics revolution’ has ensued, accompanied by significant technological advancements in both hardware and software.

This revolution is transforming medicine, and nowhere more so than in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. In the field of bladder cancer, Old Bradfordian and former Urological Surgeon, Rik Bryan, and his team at the University of Birmingham are at the heart of these innovations.

6pm to 7pm in the Price Hall, at Bradford Grammar School. Followed by Q&A and refreshments.
