Implementing genomic precision medicine with polygenic risk scores
Dr George Busby
Mon 17 May 2021
George is a statistical geneticist and science communicator. He has worked at the University of Oxford for more than 10 years and his scientific work has been published in Nature and Science, amongst other journals. He has always been fascinated by the potential of DNA to be used to reconstruct human evolutionary history by analysing large genomic datasets with advanced statistical modelling. He now leads Allelica's scientific team, helping to bring polygenic risk scores to the market for the first time by showing their use in medical genetics.
Transforming Genomics in the NHS
Professor Sir Mark Caulfield
Fri 7 May 2021
The Oxford Personalised Medicine Society was thrilled to host Professor Sir Mark Caulfield, Chief Scientist for Genomics England and charged with delivery of the 100,000 Genomes Project.
Professor Sir Caulfield is additionally director of the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre at Barts and the London school of Medicine and Dentistry. He was Director of William Harvey Research Institute (2002-2020), elected to the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2008 and was President of the British Hypertension Society from 2009-2011.
Race, Genomes and Data: The Bias Built into Science
Dr Adam Rutherford
Fri 26 Feb 2021, 18h
Dr Adam Rutherford is a British geneticist, author, and broadcaster. He was an audio-visual content editor for the journal Nature for a decade, and is a frequent contributor to the newspaper The Guardian. He hosts the BBC Radio 4 programme Inside Science, has produced several science documentaries and has published books related to genetics and the origin of life.
CRISPR-Cas9: Genome Editing and the Future of Medicine
Professor Jennifer Doudna
Tue 2 March 2021, 17h
Dr Jennifer Doudna is an American biochemist. She has been a leading figure in what is referred to as the"CRISPR revolution" for her fundamental work and leadership in developing CRISPR-mediated genome editing. In 2012, Professor Doudna and Emmanuelle Charpentier were the first to propose that CRISPR-Cas9 could be used for programmable editing of genomes, which is now considered one of the most significant discoveries in the history of biology. They were awarded the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for their pioneering work.
Thu 11 March 2021, 18h
We're pleased to announce the opening of applications for student speakers for the 2021 Annual Personalised Medicine Student Symposium!
Open to students at the University of Oxford, the symposium is a chance to showcase the wide range of student involvement in personalised medicine across the University.
Prizes will be awarded for the best presentation and best poster submission, and all attendees will receive a certificate of attendance. There will also be opportunities to network, and to hear about upcoming opportunities to work with the society.
HT2021 Week 4
Interested in a career in science, medicine, or a science adjacent field? Not sure where to start, or the career paths available? We have a fantastic panel of academics who are keen to share their expertise and answer questions in this panel format, Q&A style event. Sign up for more information, and please let us know the kind of things you'd like to learn about a career in scientific research and personalised medicine!
Intro to Python Workshop
3 March 2021, 14h-16h30
4 March 2021, 17h30-19h
OUPM will be running a two-part workshop this term, covering the basics of the coding language Python. Learning a coding language is a great opportunity to better understand and engage with your data in research, is a valuable skill for both scientists and employers, and is essential in many aspects of personalised medicine research!
No experience in coding is needed – this workshop is specifically aimed at those with little or no prior experience in the language.
Places are limited, so registration is essential to secure a place.
