New Year's resolutions can make January distinctly dull. No junk food, no alcohol, no fun ...
Well, not wholly true - we have something to spruce up your January - if you work in genetics at least! Apologies for getting anyone else's hopes up. In just 2 weeks we'll be celebrating everything 'genomics' at the Festival of Genomics London, happening 19th-21st January. Think "work hard, play hard" - an interactive learning environment with lots of fun show-floor features to indulge in.
There's still time to join us and an epic assembly of leaders as they discuss the future of medicine in the UK. The Executive Chair of Genomics England, Sir John Chisholm, the Minister for Life Science, George Freeman MP and Chief Medical Offer at the Department of Health, Dame Sally Davies will be taking to the Festival stage as one of our headline acts. Register online today to be in the front row.
Chart-toppers from pharma and biotech have also recently joined the line-up. Key figures from Boehringer Ingelheim, Amgen, AstraZeneca and GSK will decipher the puzzle of precision medicine, how it will be affecting the focus of your company, and the steps required to make it happen.
That's not all. Hear first-hand the hottest debate in genomics at the moment: whether CRISPR-Cas9 should be used to experiment on human embryos, taking place on the Tech Forum stage.
With just 2 weeks until the Festival opens, register online today. Not only will you already have something productive in the diary for January to show your colleagues, you can still save - register now to make the most of the pre-event prices saving up to £100.
Kind regards, Laura Rae, Festival Director
