The Tree of Life

Run time: 10:30 – 17:00

Who we are, and how our lives unfold is shaped by our heritage, genomics, environment, and our choices. New discoveries are helping our understanding of humanity and our healthcare every day.

But what if the data we are studying does not reflect our diversity? How can we ensure science serves us all equally?

The diverse tree of life still holds many undiscovered mysteries, such as the causes and cure for rare genetic diseases.

Join Breaking Down Barriers, Central and South Genomic Medicine Service (NHS), and the GRACE project (The Open University) in a series of creative workshops designed to uncover the missing pieces in our data and ask what it really means to be representative.
