Genomics England Research Summit 2022

May 4 2022

About the event


The Summit is an exciting one-day event that explores the latest research and technology innovations from Genomics England, partners and complementary fields.

Through talks, panel discussions, posters and exhibitions across four themes, you can take part in a valuable programme tailored to your areas of interest. Make connections, learn new skills and help to shape the next steps in strengthening the ecosystem that’s turning science into healthcare for everyone.

The Summit is both virtual and in-person, held at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London, easily accessed from King’s Cross and St Pancras International stations. To view more details and to register your place, please visit the Genomics Research Summit website.

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.
