Upcoming rare disease meetings



The 12th Wellcome meeting on rare diseases will present an exciting blend of genomic science and clinical medicine and is occurring from March 26-28 at the Wellcome Genome Campus in Cambridge, UK. This year’s programme will focus on the lessons learned from large-scale whole genome sequencing studies and discuss the new multiomic and single cell technologies that are having an impact on our understanding of rare diseases. There will also be the opportunity for bioinformaticians working in this area to showcase the innovative tools that they have developed. We will also include sessions on the legal and ethical issues around sharing patient data and explore the new therapeutic approaches to rare diseases.
