The policy summit was held to mark 25 years of the PHG Foundation and naturally touched on historical developments - of policy, genomic research and recent work from the PHG Foundation, but the emphasis was on the future. Dame June Raine, Chief Executive at the MHRA and Dr Sarah Byron from NICE, among others, talked about the new strategies of their respective organisations to enable the implementation of the best emerging scientific innovations and technologies.
Presentations by healthcare leaders including Prof Dame Sue Hill and Prof Sir John Burn explored current and future health priorities. Prof Sally Sheard who along with her colleague, Dr Phil Begley, wrote the book Making genetics and genomics policy in Britain, provided fascinating insights on how health policy was developed and the lessons for the future.
