UK Genetic Disorders Leadership Symposia

Presented by Genetic Disorders UK in partnership with Global Genes.

The aim of the UK Genetic Disorders Leadership Symposia is to provide delegates with the contacts, information, ideas and inspiration that will enable them to make a difference to the impact of their organisations both in the short and long-term.

Every March, Genetic Disorders UK hosts the UK Genetic Disorders Leadership Symposium to bring together the leaders of UK-based genetic disorder charities and patient groups. The symposium begins on a Friday evening with a networking dinner and is followed on the Saturday with an agenda that includes presentations from:

  • experts in areas such as genetic research, government policy and healthcare
  • leaders of disorder-specific charities and patient groups sharing best practice
  • organisations offering services or products of interest to the UK genetic disorders community.

Members of the UK Genetic Disorders Partnership Network receive priority places at the symposia and all costs are covered by our generous sponsors. If you belong to a UK-based genetic disorder charity or patient group or are setting one up and you would like to know more, please contact symposium@geneticdisordersuk.org.
