Dear Fellow Genomicists,

it is our pleasure to announce our Cambridge Genomics Virtual Meetup for the month of May on Wednesday 20th[masked]pm BST;[masked]pm PDT. The theme of this event will be on Genomic Medicine.

This month we have gathered an outstanding set of speakers, joining us from Genomics England Augusto Rendon, Head of Bioinformatics; a representative of Congenica (Wellcome Genome Campus); and to close the evening, Francisco de la Vega, joining us from San Francisco (CA) as CSO of Fabric Genomics.

After the three talks we will have a 25’ social evening, from 20.35 until 21.00pm. This will be an informal networking opportunity for people to get a little bit, only if virtually, of the social we are used to have face-to-face, perhaps even get ourselves a drink and share it with other people at the same time.

We will use Zoom* (you will get the link when you register).

Event Timezones:[masked] PM Madrid/Paris/Frankfurt[masked] PM London[masked] PM Boston[masked] PM San Francisco

Here is the planned schedule:
[masked]pm BST Dr Augusto Rendon (Genomics England/ University of Cambridge)

[masked]pm BST Dr Francisco de la Vega (Fabric Genomics/ Stanford)
[masked]pm BST Break - Get Your Drink or Lunch (depends on timezone)

This will be an excellent opportunity to learn from across academia, industry and the tech sector in the #MedicalGenomics area.

*Please note we will be recording, so if you are not able to ‘dial-in’ we will forward the YouTube links of the speakers who agreed to be recorded soon afterwards. As a participant, by joining you agree your interventions to be recorded.

**We take very seriously gender balance in our events. Sometimes unfortunately we are unable to achieve it. We welcome suggestions for female speakers for future events any time.
