Population genomics for cancer screening

On Monday 14 February 2022 the RSM hosted the London Clinic Lecture, the latest in an annual series of public lectures, which was given by Professor Ranjit Manchanda, Professor of Gynaecological Oncology and Consultant Gynaecological Oncologist, Wolfson Institute of Population Health, Queen Mary University of London and Barts Health NHS Trust.  

During his lecture, Professor Manchanda explored population genetic testing for cancer predisposition and how preventive population genomics offers the prospect of tailoring care and interventions to those at greatest risk in society. 

At the welcoming address, Professor Roger Kirby, RSM President, said: “Each year the RSM hosts a series of public lectures to provide opportunities for healthcare professionals to hear from distinguished scientists, clinicians and other leaders, and to share learning and innovation with members of the public with an interest in medicine and healthcare.  

“We were fortunate to have been enlightened by Professor Ranjit Manchanda at this year’s London Clinic Lecture, who shared important insights into how preventive population genomics enables population stratification for targeting effective screening and cancer prevention strategies.”
