“Genetics, Genomics and Global Health – Inequalities, Identities and Insecurities” – One day Conference at University of Sussex, 18th July 2014

Scientific advagenetics, genomics, global healthnces in our understanding of genetics and genomics may generate major improvements for human health in the coming decades. From a global health perspective, however, the translation of genomics into new medical treatments also raises profound international and local issues around inequality, identity and insecurity.

This interdisciplinary conference brings together experts from the fields of policy, research, industry, foundations, journalism, and non-governmental organisations in order to assess how the rise of genetic and genomic challenges has begun to shape to the field of global health, and what new challenges it poses for global health policy. There is also the opportunity to tailor the conference to your own interests by choosing from a range of concurrent panel sessions in the afternoon followed by further discussion during the networking reception.
