Leveraging Genomes to Phenomes to Advance Cardiovascular Precision Medicine
For our next talk, in the BDI/CHG (gen)omics Seminar series, we will be hearing from Jemma C. Hopewell, Professor of Precision Medicine & Epidemiology, Cardiovascular Co-Lead, NIHR Biomedical Research Centre, Nuffield Department of Population Health (NDPH). We’re delighted to host Prof Hopewell in what promises to be a great talk!

Date: Tuesday 11 June
Time: 9:30 am – 10:30 am
Talk title: Leveraging Phenomes to Genomes to Advance Cardiovascular Precision Medicine
Location: Big Data Institute Seminar Room 1

Abstract: The big data era offers an unrivalled opportunity for transforming our understanding and approach to the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Advances in phenotypic and patient profiling can have impact on drug development, clinical study design and prescribing guidance, and are integral to developing population approaches to precision medicine. l will take you through some of the recent cardiovascular research we have been undertaking that leverages the power of multiple data sources and modalities to elucidate our understanding of the causes, consequences and treatments for cardiovascular disease and arrhythmias; from latest efforts in genetic discovery and the relevance of biological pathways to our multi-omic and pharmaco-omic research initiatives.

Short Bio: Jemma Hopewell is Professor of Precision Medicine & Epidemiology in the Nuffield Department of Population Health (NDPH) and Big Data Institute, University of Oxford, and has a visiting position at McGill University. She leads a multidisciplinary team in a programme of cardiovascular research leveraging large-scale clinical trials and population biobanks to advance our understanding of coronary disease, stroke and atrial fibrillation. Her research encompasses phenotyping, epidemiology and causal inference in synergy with genetic discovery, multi-omics, and pharmacogenomics. Jemma has various roles ranging from co-leading the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre Cardiovascular Theme and directing genomic research in NDPH cardiovascular clinical trials to being a British Heart Foundation Centre for Research Excellence PI and a Chair of the CARDioGRAMplusC4D international consortium.
All members of the University are welcome to join, please let reception at BDI know you’re here for the seminar and sign-in. We hope you can join us!

We also now have a mailing list –
To be added, ping genomics_bdi_whg-subscribe@maillist.ox.ac.uk (with any message), you should get a bounce-back with three options to confirm your subscription. Follow any of those options, and with a bit of luck you should be signed up!

As a reminder, the (gen)omics seminar series runs every other Tuesday morning and is intended to increase interaction between individuals working in genomics across Oxford. We encourage in-person attendance where possible. There is time for discussion over, tea, coffee and pastries after the talks.

Hybrid Option:
Please note that these meetings are closed meetings and only open to members of the University of Oxford to encourage sharing of new and unpublished data. Please respect our speakers and do not share the link with anyone outside of the university.
