The Scottish Science Advisory Council have published their report into Informing the Future of Genomic Medicine in Scotland. This report was commissioned by the Scottish Government’s Chief Scientist Office (CSO) to review the development of Genomic Medicine in Scotland in order to support long-term planning and investment. Both Professor Andrew Biankin and Dr Susie Cook, the sequencing lead at Glasgow Precision Oncology Laboratory, were on the writing committee for this important report that provides an overview of the current genomic medicine capabilities in Scotland and summaries the oppurtunities and benefits for the NHS, research and life sciences sectors in Scotland.
Precision-Panc is shown as an example of the strong commitment Scotland is making to precision medicine initiatives and Glasgow Precision Oncology Laboratory is described as a centre of excellence for genomic sequencing. We are very proud that the study and the team behind it are held in such high esteem by the CSO and look forward to being at the forefront of the genomic medicine revolution in Scotland and throughout the UK.
