Genomics & Precision Medicine – Prof. Kathryn North

Publication date: Oct 15, 2019

What does fast, cheap genetic sequencing mean for the future of healthcare? So much of our past, present and future health is encoded in our genes, and we’re rapidly developing the means to read and even manipulate that code. This new era of highly personalised medicine will bring revolutionary new methods of diagnosis and treatment, along with some very tricky ethical issues.

Kathryn North is trained as a paediatric physician, neurologist and clinical geneticist and was awarded a doctorate for research in neurogenetics. She is a translational scientist and is widely recognised as a world leader in neuromuscular disorders, cognitive deficits in neurofibromatosis, and the study of genes that influence athletic performance.

Prof. Kathryn North, Director of the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, Melbourne, speaking to students at the 40th Professor Harry Messel International Science School, ISS2019: Frontier Science – The University of Sydney, Australia, July 2019.
