WIRED 2013 conference

Wired2013I had the privilege of speaking at the WIRED 2013 conference at Tobacco Dock in London today. This is a two-day event celebrating the ‘ideas, innovations and people reshaping our world’. A range of diverse speakers each speak for 15 minutes. It was very different from the usual scientific conferences I speak at!. I found it refreshing and inspiring to hear people from such diverse areas and to have to ‘perform’ outside my normal comfort zone. I was talking about the huge potential of information in our genes to help in cancer treatment and prevention. I hope I was able to communicate the scale of progress and potential as well as the enormity of the task of making sense of the 3 billion letters in the DNA code held in our cells. If you would like to hear it, my talk is available on YouTube here.
