Global Genomics Conference 2022

Hosted by Public Policy Projects (PPP)

PPP’s Global Genomics Conference (GGC) will provide a platform for the exploration and discussion of some of the key policy and ethical considerations of participation in genomics and builds upon the more specific work that PPP has conducted and is conducting in the UK specifically and via our global genomics programmes of work.

Our intention is not to lead with the science – there are many other, better qualified, fora for these discussions - but to lead with policy, both very specific, actionable policy when it comes to the UK specific discussions and broader policy insights when it comes to areas of global focus.

 

This is a four day event, starting on 23rd of May 2022. This event consists of three days of webinars and one in-person conference held in London.

What is Public Policy Projects’ mission with respect to Genomics?

“We must ensure that new genome science and its benefits will be directed toward making life better for all citizens of the world, never just a privileged few” was a statement that President Bill Clinton made in 2003 when the first draft of the human genome sequence was published and yet access to the benefits of genomics is not equally available to all. In part that is driven by the fact that the datasets which exist do not reflect the diversity of the global population.  

This has been at the heart of our global genomics programmes of work – to explore how this lack of diversity has the potential to exacerbate health inequalities that we know exist and what steps need to be taken to address this. There is a myriad of inter-connected issues that contribute to these challenges and the purpose of PPP’s programmes of work has been to convene a unique cohort of stakeholders and subject matter experts from a variety of jurisdictions to identify and explore the policy issues that need to be addressed.
