PUBLIC LECTURE: Genetics and the Future of Medicine
This 2012 Ian Constable Lecture will be given by Matt Brown, Professor of Immunogenetics & Director, Diamantina Institute University of Queensland.
Genetics is a relatively recent discipline of medical practice and research. The field has always promised much in terms of the insights into causes of disease, and its use to predict disease risk, but only in recent years has it looked likely to deliver on that potential. Genetics may now enable medicine to move from therapy to disease prevention, and is providing fascinating insights as to how human diseases arise. There is much to be done to prepare us for the genetics era - and to protect us from it. However the potential of this one field to radically improve the health of our community makes these worthwhile tasks.
The annual Ian Constable lecture is presented by the Lion's Eye Institute and the Institute of Advanced Studies at UWA.
