Genomics Summit co-hosted in Dublin by GMI and UCD

Members of the POI team attended the Genomics Summit, held in the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on the 23rd January 2020, which was co-hosted by POI partner Genomics Medicine Ireland, and UCD Research and Innovation.

The agenda for the day provided some thought-provoking discussions around the potential of genomic medicine to tackle rare genetic disorders and cancer, as well as a focus on the skills and resources required to build a genomics infrastructure in Ireland.

Speakers were drawn from the spheres of academia, industry and patient advocacy, and included Dr. Howard Jacob, VP and Head of Genomic Research at Abbvie, and Prof. Robert Green, Director of the genomes2people Research Program, and Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.
