We strongly feel that International DNA Day is a perfect time to seriously think about genomic medicine for daily use in hospitals. While costs for sequencing are dropping there are still major political, societal, technical and scientific challenges to address before genomic medicine will be a standard clinical practice.
Our GAP closing event on April 25 features two main parts:

  • Morning session: The broader strategy needed to make genomic medicine a reality in Europe
  • Afternoon session: Scientific and engineering challenges.
