From Building Blocks to Blockbusters

Unlocking the secrets within our genetic code has given birth to the biological revolution which we are fortunate to be witnessing.

From an investment by an international consortium of around $3 billion and 10 years to sequence the first whole human genome to today – when it can be done for under $500 and in less than a day – can we dare to hope that this will soon translate into more targeted treatments for hitherto untreatable diseases, including many cancers?

Is it just a matter of time before we will all carry our genetic information in our smart phones or on smart cards?

Come and hear a fantastic line up of speakers give a series of Codex Talks at the World’s Top 50 Innovators Series at the BT Auditorium in London on 28 September.
