"We need to think about Genomics and we need to think about education because both are going to massively, massively change, and improve. I think we will be living in a very different space [in 30 years] than we are now...we are at the tip of the Iceberg."
In this episode of The G Word, our CEO Chris Wigley is joined by Professor Kate Tatton Brown who is the Clinical Director and Head of the Genomics Education Programme at Health Education England. She's also a consultant in clinical genetics at St. George's University Hospital, and a Professor in clinical genetics and genomics education with St. George's, within the University of London.
Together, they discuss Kate's pursuit of education for others around the complex topics of genomic medicine and research. Delving into the fundamentals of undergraduate and postgraduate curriculum changes, NHS involvement in genomic healthcare and the necessity of moving forward within research.
