The Genomics Education Programme (GEP) has been working in collaboration with champions of genomics from a range of clinical specialisms to produce a series of short films and accompanying information focusing on the impact of genomics. The first three films, ‘Genomics in Cardiology’, ‘Genomics in Pathology’ and ‘Genomics in Primary Care’ launched this week.
Each film is accompanied by supporting information, with the key message that genomics is changing practice in every specialty and has real clinical benefits for patients. View the films here.
Dr James Ware, Clinical Senior Lecturer at Imperial College London and Consultant Cardiologist at Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Trust, gives an overview of the latest advances in genomics in cardiology.
Dr Jane Moorhead, Consultant Clinical Scientist in Histopathology at Kings College Hospital, and Professor Louise Jones, Consultant Pathologist at Barts Health NHS Trust and Professor of Pathology at Barts Cancer Institute, explain the latest developments in pathology and cancer treatment.
Dr Jude Hayward, a GP with a special interest in genetics and genomics, explains the importance of genomics in primary care and the role that primary care practitioners play in the delivery of personalised medicine.
