In this very special Bioinformatics.London meetup, we're joining with the London Clinical and Health Data Science Meetup. The speaker will be Will Spooner from Genomics England. See:

Dr Will Spooner - Genomics England - "The power of genomics to transform clinical data science; accelerating biomedical research and changing the way the health system works"

ABSTRACT: The NHS Long Term Plan released this month contained an exciting commitment: "Digitally-enabled care will go mainstream across the NHS" resulting in "an NHS where access to secure linked clinical, genomic and other data will support new medical breakthroughs and consistent quality of care". Genomics England has delivered a prototypical resource that delivers just that; an environment that provides access to linked clinical and genomic data from the 100,000 Genomes Project. Our Research Environment has been available to accredited researchers from both academia and industry for the past year. This talk will introduce the Research Environment and our development roadmap, and speculate about its role as a blueprint for clinical data science platforms of the future.
