Dr Rona Strawbridge has been using genetics to try to understand complex diseases, who’s work has focused much on obesity, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and more recently serious mental illness. We managed to have a chat with Rona ahead of her speaking at the Festival of Genomics about her work and why she’s excited to be speaking at the festival this year.
Dr Susie Cooke is the Head of Medical Genomics at the Glasgow Precision Oncology Laboratory whose main interest is in facilitating the move of next-generation sequencing into the clinic to help cancer patients.
Arianne Shahvisi is a Senior Lecturer in Ethics at the Brighton and Sussex Medical School. We managed to have a chat with Arianne ahead of her speaking at the Festival of Genomics, to get her take on the ‘coloniality’ of health and how the much-hyped advent of Whole Genome Sequencing might play a role in exasperating social injustices.
