BSH 2018 | Integrating genomics into clinical hematology

The field of genomics is one of great promise, and there is hope that it can be implemented into all areas of medicine. Here, Willem Ouwehand, MD, PhD, of the University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK ,speaks about how we can integrate genomics into clinical hematology at the British Society for Haematology (BSH) 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting, held in Liverpool, UK.. He cites the efforts of the 100,000 Genomes Project; applauding the involvement of not only patients, but family members and the public at large. Prof. Ouewehand suggests a key step towards integrating genomics to the bedside is allowing the NHS workforce to be comfortable and familiar towards the field.
