Jon Williams [BSc(hons) 2007, PhD 2011] gave a talk in the 2014 CABS season about the work of a Clinical Scientist in the NHS, and specifically the Genetic services. The emergence of so-called Next Generation sequencing has massively reduced the cost of DNA sequencing and is opening up the prospect of genomic medicine. Jon illustrated this with a variety of examples from his own experience. He spoke  extensively about the Scientist Training Programme, which he was just completing (this programme is now co-ordinated by the National School of Healthcare Science, with applications opening in January of each year, although it is recommended to attend the information days in the preceding autumn). A transcript of Jon’s talk is available here.
