Global Genomics roundtable 4: The Democratisation of Genomic Data and Equity of Return
*This is an invitation only event*
Building upon the many lessons drawn from the completed three roundtables of this series, partnered with learnings from past global health crises and the Covid-19 pandemic, it remains apparent that the world is dangerously exposed to novel and unknown health risks, irrespective of exponential developments in our ability to care for, prolong and protect the health of the population. As this series has explored thus far, access to the right genomic, and related, data could help scientists develop faster responses not only for global pandemics, but also for long-term improvements in patient outcomes and quality of life for millions suffering from debilitating or rare diseases or provide better access to personalised medicines. If the field of genomics, and genomic sciences, are to be able to fulfil their potential in protecting population health, consideration must be given to how a world in which data sharing and accessibility is achieved.
