Anne Wojcicki will discuss personal genomics in the genetic revolution, and its impact on healthcare, in a “Town Hall” style meeting in the Sheldonian Theatre on April 16, at 19:15.
The format of the event will be introductory remarks by Anne, followed by a question and answer session moderated by Peter Donnelly (Director of the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics), and then questions and discussion from the audience.
Anne Wojcicki founded 23andMe, following a 10-year background in healthcare investing, with a hope to empower consumers with access to their own genetic information and change the face of health care. From her vantage point, Anne saw a need for creating a way to generate more information – especially more personalized information – so that commercial and academic researchers could better understand and develop new drugs and diagnostics.
The event is free and open to all, but registration is requested.
