  • Overview

Our President-Elect Munir Pirmohamed will introuduce pharmacogenomics. 

This event is aimed at those working within the healthcare sector, along with others who have an interest in genomic medicine.

Genomic Medicine is very much a part of the NHS forward view and has the potential to provide safer drug prescribing, thus making valuable savings on clinical appointments and NHS resources.

Professor Sir Munir Pirmohamed (NHS chair of pharmacogenetics) will introduce the topic, Professor Dame Sue Hill (NHS chief scientific officer) and Professor Mark Caulfield (Genomics England) will present on the success of the 100K Genomes project and the launch of the NHS Genomic Medicine Service. Dr Imran Rafi (GP) will highlight the importance of pharmacogenomics in Primary Care and Professor Dyfrig Hughes (Bioinformatician, University of Bangor) will discuss the health economics of introducing pharmacogenetics in to patient care. Dr Anneke Seller (HEE) will introduce the HEE Genomics Education Programme and there will be plenty of opportunities to debate, and ask questions about, the importance of pharmacogenetics for patient care.
