Citizen Impact and Industry Opportunity.

Leeds and the UK are leading the way in Genomics and data-driven personalised medicine. At this event, you will be inspired by stories which illustrate how this important field is revolutionising the way in which we diagnose and treat diseases and disorders, tailored to an individual’s unique genetic code.. The Medical Research Council-funded Industry Engagement Academy and the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) will give you practical pointers about how your company can benefit from investment in our region. Roche, who are the global leaders in this field, will be on hand to paint the bigger picture; with Pinpoint Cancer, who focus on artificial intelligence and biomarkers, will share an SME perspective on growing their business in our city.
