Genomics and precision medicine represents a growing area of science and medicine. A greater understanding of the role a person’s genes, behaviours and environment plays in their general health is becoming an increasingly important part of the global healthcare and biomedical research ecosystem.Upskilling and diversifying the skillsets of a generation of life scientists, biomedical scientists and healthcare professionals to effectively understand utilize this data driven approach is essential to realizing this transformation. Students will be taught the fundamentals of clinical and translational research, applications in clinical diagnostics and Biomarker development and how precision medicine is being applied in the areas of oncology, drug development and infectious disease. Introductory modules in translational bioinformatics and biostatistics have been added to provide students new to these areas with interdisciplinary skill sets to draw insights and value from precision medicine data and to communicate their findings across different domains. The program will be delivered by clinical and scientific experts from UCD, experienced Bioinformaticians and computer scientists, statisticians and experts in public health as well as industry leaders in precision medicine. This programme is applicable to life sciences graduates and healthcare professionals, wishing to pursue careers in industry, academia and in clinical settings.
