Genomics Education Programme New Webinar Series

January 24 2023 @ 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM



The first webinar and Q&A session in the series will be broadcast live on Tuesday 24 January at 5pm and will provide an introduction to gene-directed therapies and is presented by cellular therapeutics expert Dr James Patterson. The webinar and Q&A will cover:

  • an introduction to gene-directed therapy modalities and strategies;
  • the use of genetic approaches for ex vivo engineering of therapeutics;
  • how we deliver gene medicines in vivo;
  • novel in vivo gene-directed therapeutics for complex disease; and
  • a discussion of near-term advancement and an overview of key challenges facing next generation approaches.

With any Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) test ordered, a Record of Discussion (RoD) form will also need to be submitted. This document is to record the patient’s consent for genomic testing and their choice on taking part in research. Guidance on the patient choice conversation can be found here
This RoD form will be available for clinicians to download from this webpage. Once completed with the patient, it can be send to the lab with the corresponding test order form and sample.
Tests available to order will be listed in the National Genomic Test Directory. A test order form will soon be made available for clinicians on this webpage to download and complete. This form will include the address of the laboratory that the appropriate sample and completed form needs to be sent to.
Until the new Genomic Laboratory Service goes live, please continue to follow existing test order processes.
Later this year, the online test ordering tool for Whole Genome Sequencing will be integrated into the National Genomics Informatics System (NGIS) and clinicians will be able to search or filter to find a clinical indication, confirm eligibility criteria and start the test request process for their patient.
