We are delighted to announce that Professor Leslie Burnett will be speaking at the Pathology Horizons 2017 Conference in Cairns this August.
Prof. Burnett will be presenting on:
“Bringing Genomics into Mainstream Medical Practice”
Prof. Burnett believes the introduction of clinically accredited Whole Genome Sequencing and the increasing availability of genomic technologies is heralding a new era for modern medicine.
According to Dr. Burnett, these transformative techniques are more than new tests: their implementation offers huge potential for improving patient care and preventative health but challenge existing systems of test requesting, patient consent, result reporting, and clinical consultation.
In his presentation Dr. Burnett will describe the scope and range of medicine that are already being changed through the ready availability of genomics, and will provide examples of some of the surprisingly simple solutions that are being developed to support the introduction of genomics into medical practice.”
Prof. Burnett is Chief Medical Officer of Genome.One, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Garvan Institute of Medical Research. He is a passionate teacher and communicator about the genetics and genomics revolution.
