Workshop: Clinical Genomics in Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Date and time: Tue, 25 April 2023, 10:00 – 16:00 BST
A proportion of patients with Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) may have a known genetic cause.
For those exceptionally rare conditions, the NHS has commissioned genomic testing in specific patient groups.
The successful implementation and progression of clinical genomics for IBD requires multi-disciplinary care, specialist knowledge and establishment of networks.
Within this workshop, hosted by the monogenic IBD team from the Central and South Genomic Medicine Service Alliance, we aim to discuss clinical care for these patients, practical implementation of clinical genomics and discuss specific monogenic cases.
This workshop is targeted at paediatric gastroenterologists, trainees, nurse specialists, immunologists, clinical geneticists, paediatricians with an interest in GI disorders and adult gastroenterologists.
Kevin Chau, a PhD student on our National PhD Training Programme in AMR Research, has contributed to the pandemic response as part of the Modernising Medical Microbiology team at John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. In a new blog post, he describes the experience.
