Description

The official launch of the UCL Personalised Medicine Domain Early Careers Network (ECN) will take place on Monday 7 November 2016 at the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health.

Eminent speakers, including Professor Sue Hill OBE (NHS Chief Scientific Officer for England, 100,000 Genomes Project), Professor Sir Munir Pirmohamed (Wolfson Centre for Personalised Medicine) and Professor Stephan Beck (Personal Genome Project UK) will present their work in personalised medicine, and give an insight into the direction they believe the field is moving in.

There will also be presentations from early career researchers, refreshment breaks and a networking drinks reception, which will provide substantive networking opportunities for you and your colleagues.

Through bringing a wide range of researchers together we aim to encourage new cross-disciplinary links and collaborations between scientists and clinicians at the forefront of personalised medicine research.
