S1/EP1 - RARE OPPORTUNITIES AND HOW WILL THE 100,000 GENOME PROJECT CHANGE HEALTH CARE‪?‬ RARE/D Conversations

    • Health & Fitness

In our first (pilot) episode we talk with Professor Bill Newman from Manchester about Rare opportunities and how will the 100, 000 Genomes Project change health care?
Professor Bill Newman is Professor of Translational Genomic Medicine in The Manchester Centre for Genomic Medicine at the University of Manchester and Honorary Consultant at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust. He is also Director of the Greater Manchester Genomic Medicine Centre for the 100,000 Genomes Project.

Our RARE/D conversations are hosted by Nichola Garde and Mariangels Ferrer, and aim to stimulate and capture public conversation about one of the biggest changes in how we think about health – what does it mean to have a rare disease and how we all may become “RARE” when genomics becomes part of mainstream healthcare. This project will focus on the psychological, ethical and economic debates and in turn show how social science is helping to shape the health care of the future.
