Exeter Respiratory Genomics workshop

     
  Genomic technologies are set to revolutionise the health sector on a global scale. Ultimately, this will result in greater patient care through the delivery of personalised medicine.

Our series will provide an in-depth overview of genomic medicine and a greater understanding of disease inheritance patterns, as well as enable participants to focus on specialist areas.

Join us for our Exeter Expert Series on:

Respiratory 12-13 October 2017

Cardiology 2-3 November 2017

Gastroenterology 23-24 November 2017

Encompassing genomic data technology, inheritance patterns, terminology and family history significance, our series will evolve into the chosen specialist areas of Respiratory, Cardiology and Gastroenterology.
  Respiratory: Practical Genomics with a Clinical Perspective 12-13 October 2017

Participants will:

• Gain an overview of cutting-edge approaches in genetic medicine including the classification of rare diseases

• Understand the importance of underlying genetics for patient management

• Recognise appropriate indications for clinical genetic referrals

• Comprehend the importance of and the challenges associated with targeting genetic mechanisms in a clinical setting

Cardiology: Practical Genomics with a Clinical Perspective 2-3 November 2017

Participants will:

• Gain a sound knowledge of the presentation and management of common inherited cardiac conditions and the cardiac involvement of neuromuscular disorders

  • Understand the investigation of SADS including molecular autopsy

• Appreciate the limitations of genetic andgenomic technologies and counsellingconsiderations for inherited cardiovascular disorders

Gastroenterology: Practical Genomics with a Clinical Perspective 23-24 November 2017

Participants will:

• Develop an understanding of complex disease genetics, and in particular, advances in our understanding of the genetic basis for bowel and liver diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease

• Learn about advances in pharmacogenetics and how we can use genetic testing to improve safe and effective treatment of gastrointestinal disorders

• Appreciate how genome and exome sequencing can be used in individual patients for diagnosis of rarer gastrointestinal disorders and to target cancer therapies more
