Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis: the who, the what, the why and the how
Date: 3 – 4 November 2017
Venue: Robens Suite, Guy’s Hospital, London SE1 9RT
Our centre has offered Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) since 1997 and is one of the most successful in Europe with more than 700 babies born free from genetic diseases following PGD for monegenic conditions or chromosome rearrangements.
Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis: the who, the what, the why and the how includes talks from Clinical Genetics, Reproductive Medicine, Embryology and Genetics Laboratories to share our multidisciplinary experience, followed by interactive workshops on complex issues.
This course is for those considering establishing a PGD service and/or who wish to broaden their experience.
Who should attend
The conference is open to embryologists, clinical geneticists, reproductive health professionals, genetic counsellors, clinical scientists and trainees on the NHS Scientist Training Programme (STP).
The course will consist of general talks and presentations as well as break-out workshops to discuss more complex issues.
