Modern medicine is amazing, but life-saving treatments can still have painful and even dangerous side-effects. However, we can now use information from our DNA to understand why some people respond better to certain medicines than others.

Our April speaker Emma Davenport is a Group Leader at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, a world-leading genomics research institute located just outside Cambridge. Emma focuses on the differences in our genomes and how they affect our bodies’ response to particular drug treatments.
