Generation Genome: the future is here

On 4 July 2017 Professor Dame Sally Davies - England’s Chief Medical Officer - published her eighth annual Report, entitled ‘Generation Genome.’ The Report focused on genomic medicine and called on clinical staff, managers, those in the biotech sector and the UK Government to work together to make wider use of revolutionary genetics techniques in the battle to improve cancer survival rates and identify rare diseases faster so patients can get the right care at the earliest opportunity. In this article Sarah Ellson, Hazel Grant and Beatriz San Martin, of Fieldfisher LLP, assess the regulatory, privacy and intellectual property issues that are yet to be solved as the rise of genomics in the UK continues.
