Speaker: Dr Jonathan Pettitt (Reader in Genetics) and Professor Zosia Miedzybrodzka (Chair in Medical Genetics and Clinical Geneticist).

Bringing the public, researchers and clinicians together

We will examine the science and challenges underlying this promise and discuss the clinical and personal limitations of this approach.
