Welcome to the Centre for Personalised Medicine podcast, where we explore the promises and pitfalls of personalised medicine and ask questions about the ethical and societal challenges it creates.
The Centre for Personalised Medicine is a partnership between the University of Oxford’s Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics and St Anne’s College, Oxford. It is a communication, engagement and research vehicle for students, academics, clinicians, the public and policy makers to explore the benefits and challenges of personalised medicine. The Centre’s principal aim is to explore personalised medicine from a range of perspectives.
In the pilot series, we interviewed members of the Centre for Personalised Medicine advisory board about their careers and their views on personalised medicine.
In our current series, we speak to researchers in the Clinical Ethics, Law and Society group at Oxford and Southampton to hear about their work on the different ethical and societal issues within personalised medicine.
Series 2 Episode 8 - Navigating a genetic diagnosis
What might it be like to navigate a genetic diagnosis and share it with family members? We talk to Julie Young from the CanGene CanVar patient reference panel about her experience.
Series 2 Episode 7 - Why research regulation falls short in genomic medicine
As a society, we tend to focus a lot on risk and try to control it through regulation - but how well does that work for ensuring ethical practice in genomics? We talk to Dr Kate Lyle about her research on this topic. Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Commercial-Share Alike 2.0 UK: England & Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/
Series 2 Episode 6 - Diversifying genomics
What are the ethical challenges with diversifying genomic data? We talk to Faranak Hardcastle about her work exploring this.
Series 2 Episode 5 - Who's 'the patient' in genomic medicine?
We live our lives alongside others, and our decisions have consequences for those close to us - what does this mean for how we define 'the patient' in genomic medicine? Susie Weller talks to us about this issue.
Series 2 Episode 4 - Newborn genome screening
What sort of findings might we get from newborn genome screening? What might this mean for the NHS? Rachel Horton talks to Gabby Samuel and Lisa Ballard.
Series 2 Episode 3 - Sharing genetic results within families
Who does a genetic result belong to? What might help people to share genetic information with their relatives? We talk to Lisa Ballard and Anneke Lucassen.
