The Elizabeth Blackwell Institute for Health Research at the University of Bristol is delighted to welcome Dame Sue 'virtually' to Bristol on 30 November 2020 to talk on the topic of Personalised Medicine.
DNA carries the instructions that makes you ‘you’. Did you know that every person's genome is around 99.9% the same as everyone else's, but that 0.1% equates to around 3 million differences? Some differences in our DNA influence our susceptibility to develop a disease; understanding this can have far reaching effects on the way we treat people. Join this webinar to hear about how genomics - the study of an organism’s genome – can be applied to the way we deliver healthcare and medicine in a more personalised way.
Professor Dame Sue Hill OBE is the Chief Scientific Officer for NHS England – providing expert clinical scientific advice across the health system and head of profession for the healthcare science workforce in the NHS and associated bodies – embracing more than 50 separate scientific specialisms.
Sue is the Senior Responsible Officer for Genomics in NHS England, leading developments in this area, having previously established the NHS Genomic Medicine Centres and led the NHS contribution to the 100,000 Genomes Project. She is a respiratory scientist by background with an international academic and clinical research reputation.
