Hosted by Newcastle University

Genetics Matters is an afternoon celebrating rare disease research in Newcastle. It is a combination of lay lectures and hands on research tables that caters for up to 100 members of general public and patient groups. Genetics Matters is s now in its 6th edition and will run 1-5pm on Saturday the 29th February at the Great Hall of the Discovery Museum. We will have 2-3 PI/patient talks, with the majority of the day dedicated to the hands-on and face-to-face research tables, with representation from the cutting edge topics of genomics, epigenetics, single cell research, stem cells and tissue regeneration, personalised medicine, drug repurposing, mitochondrial donation, cancer research, and patient involvement in research. Patient organisations take part every year and use this opportunity to raise awareness of rare diseases amongst the public in the North East, and present the patient perspective. At Genetics Matters we always emphasise the patients' experiences of life with a rare disease, the importance of coming together as a rare disease community, and the importance of patient involvement in research. The event is free and refreshments are provided. To book, please click: tinyurl.com/uvexkwn
