Here at Front Line Genomics, we love to celebrate the contributions made to the field at our annual Festival of Genomics every January.
This year, we had over 120+ speakers and of which, 50% were women!
Dr Alfredo Iacoangeli is a post-doctoral researcher at King’s College London whose aim is the development of a high throughput gene, environment and epigenetics database and analysis system for international ALS research. We managed to have a chat with Alfredo ahead of him speaking at the Festival of Genomics about his work, and why he’s excited to be a part of the festival this year.
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.
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.
Rory Collins, Principal Investigator and Chief Executive of UK Biobank leads this landmark project. We talk to him about some of the research outcomes from UK Biobank, and why he’s excited to be speaking at the Festival of Genomics this January.
