Genomics is a well established field in medicine and has existed for more than 50 years. Now we face the prospect of moving the knowledge and practice of this field into everyday patient care for practitioners of every specialty. This comes with many challenges. Genomic medicine as it exists is somewhat inefficient and is not scalable. There are educational, technical, financial, and legal barriers to expanding this field across healthcare.
In this session, Nephi Walton discusses the challenges of scaling genomic medicine and the hope and promise it holds based on patients being treated today.
