Elizabeth Blackwell Annual Public Lecture 2020
Professor Dame Sue Hill
Save the date for this year's Elizabeth Blackwell Public Lecture with Professor Dame Sue Hill, 1.30 - 2.30 pm on Monday 30 November.
We are delighted to welcome Dame Sue 'virtually' to Bristol 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.
