Nerve Tumours UK takes part in the Genomics Showcase

26 April 2021

Genomic Showcase 2021

Date: Friday 14th May

Time: 10 am to 7 pm 

What is the Genomics Showcase?

Wales Gene Park is organising a new and exciting Genomics Showcase in collaboration with Genomics Partnership Wales. The Showcase was due to take place in Cardiff City Hall, however, the pandemic has forced a move to a virtual platform for delivery, so now you can join from the comfort of your own home!

The event will showcase genomics and its potential to improve healthcare for the people of Wales. The event will be live from 10.00 am until 7.00 pm. You can join and leave as many times as you like during the day or stay logged on for the duration!

Register for free and visit us at our virtual booth! Chat with our Specialist Neurofibromatosis Nurses and our head office team or get involved in the overall program.
