‘Genomics in Gastroenterology’ specialist resource

The Genomics Education Programme (GEP) has launched a new resource for those working in gastroenterology, endoscopy and others involved in the management and treatment of gastrointestinal diseases. This new resource has been developed in collaboration with Professor Kevin Monahan, consultant gastroenterologist at St Marks Hospital, Harrow. In the film, he explains how the use of genomics in gastroenterology can help in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of a whole range of rare and common conditions.

The ‘Genomics in Medical Specialties’ series looks at the impact of genomics across different disciplines within medicine, with a focus on the way in which new technology and rapidly increasing knowledge are changing the way we work and the ways in which patients are treated and cared for.

The full resource is available on the GEP website, and comprises of a short film and accompanying information covering key facts and uses.
