Improving Diagnosis for Patients with Rare Genetic Disease

Three speakers from leading institutions will outline how they have improved diagnostic yield and case throughput in their clinics, across three different medical specialties.

Using case examples, the speakers will show how they have streamlined diagnosis in fetal abnormalities, epilepsy and complex neuropathy in everyday clinical practice, and for the UK 100,000 Genomes Project.

Time: 12:15 – 13:45   I   Saturday 15th June
Location: Room A-4     Swedish Exhibition & Congress Center

Lunch will be provided
