Lunch & Learn – Renal Genomics: Steroid-Resistant Nephrotic Syndrome

January 27 2023 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM


Ania Koziell-An introduction to Genomic SRNS, Ania is a consultant nephrologist and Senior Lecturer with a research focus on the genomics of kidney disease. She is also the lead for Renal Genomics for the South East Genomic Medicine Alliance (GMSA) which aims to implement genomics into the NHS to support a precision medicine approach thus improving diagnostics and therapeutic decision making.

Eduardo Lee and Alisa Wong-Renal Genomics: The role of the Nurse and Midwife, Eduardo and Alisa are Renal Genomics Clinical Nurse Specialists working across South East and North Thames GMSA supporting the nephrology departments in the integration of genomic medicine in renal patient care and have leading roles in expanding awareness and education/training about renal genomics in practice.


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.
