The European HQ of the precision medicine revolution - join us

Join 91 genomic expert speakers:

Sue Hill, the CSO for England - here's why she's taking part ...

"The Festival of Genomics recognises that developments in genomics reach far beyond specialist teams and will soon transform the day-to-day practice of everybody working to improve health and mitigate illness."


Catrin Middleton, Programme Manager, Precision Medicine, Cancer Research UK - here's why she's coming back this year

"Last year’s event was a hive of activity and it’s great to be back this year with patients and their families at the heart of the programme."

Highlights from 2016

The mission - get the benefits of genomics to patients faster

Bums on seats (and lots of them)


What's on in 2017?

Join over 1200 visitors on this, our genomic mission. Take your work to new heights and help bring genomics into the clinic - let's change the face of healthcare. Together.

Register for the Festival for FREE and be part of the precision medicine revolution.

Just some of the reasons to attend in 2017...


Data. Understand how analysing, sharing and INTEGRATING bio-data at SCALE is driving biology and medicine forwards. Our Enabling Data track will enlighten on the potential for advanced analytics/AI to help us cure complex diseases. Gain insights into the work of GA4GH to catalyse data sharing, reinvent the reference genome and unlock the potential of genomics on a global scale.
