Wednesday 24 May 2017, Royal Society of Medicine
1 Wimpole Street

This study day will explore the fundamental principles of genetic and metabolic medicine relevant to a paediatric career. We will discuss developments in the field and their associated practical applications, including whole genome sequencing within the 100,000 genomes project. We will have talks from consultants, genetic counsellors and a parent of children with a metabolic condition, about how paediatricians can make a difference. We will also run workshops on metabolic cases, and have a discussion about the ethical and social aspects of genetic testing.
