On Friday 30 November, Prof. Bartha Knoppers will present highlights from from a special issue of Human Genetics on international Genomic Data Sharing (published in August 2018). The special issue on Genomic Data Sharing points to the great potential for genomic data in revolutionising healthcare.  Prof. Knoppers will reflect on whether harmonisation is an impossible dream, drawing on data from seven jurisdictions about the governance of international data linkage.

A list of Professor Knoppers’ publications can be found here.
