Genetics Matters 2017 25 February 2017 The Discovery Museum, Blandford Square, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 4, Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK
+44191241 8816
Hosted by Institute of Genetic Medicine, Newcastle University

We are pleased to announce we’ll be hosting our popular Genetics Matters event again on the 25th of February 2017 as part of the international Rare Disease Day. Come meet the scientists, touch real specimens, chat about rare diseases and hear about the exciting state of the art research at Newcastle University.

"Genetics Matters" annual event serves to showcase genetic research and to give the patient and charity organisations a voice and a platform to interact with the members of general public. The theme of the Rare Disease Day in 2017 is "Research", and we would like our event to emphasize the crucial role that patients play in research by voicing their needs and instigating change. We would like patients or members of patient families to be present on the day and actively participate, sharing the presenting with our scientists. We believe that the patients' voice is important in directing the course of scientific research and that it is important to remember that behind the tubes and microscope slides there is also a human story, and that we are all working towards a common goal.
