Join GEL’s CCO Parker Moss and Lifebit CEO Dr Maria Chatzou Dunford as they share their insights and lessons learned from Genomics England’s next-gen Research Environment which rings in a new model for the industry. Come away with a blueprint you can apply in your own biobank or PopGen initiative today.

Previous solutions that tried to deal with the massive amounts of data generated by biobanks were woefully inadequate and fraught with usability, commercial and security challenges. Biomedical data is not only growing exponentially - it is becoming more siloed and distributed than ever before. This remains the greatest challenge faced by biobanks.

We are thrilled to offer this premier webinar to bring you an exclusive view into how Genomics England solved those formidable challenges with a pioneering federated approach to give flexible access to their growing, diverse data, enabling true collaboration across disparate datasets and teams, while guaranteeing Fort Knox-grade data security. We will discuss how this approach is bringing the industry together and opens the door to a future of joint cohort analysis.

GEL’s Parker Moss offers behind-the-scenes insights, highlights the importance of federated technology for the entire field, and will be on hand to field your questions as you discover how to future-proof your own unique population genomics initiative.

  • Learn how you can guarantee Fort Knox-grade security for growing data while enabling cutting edge research for everyone, no matter where they are
  • Discover the three things pharma & academic researchers need above all
  • How to future-proof: Understand how the industry is moving towards joint analysis and what is required to be part of it across your data and distributed external data & cohorts


  • Today’s PopGen Landscape: Challenges & Opportunities
  • Exclusive behind-the-scenes look at GEL’s groundbreaking Research Environment
  • Your blueprint for success: technology and new methods you can implement now to leapforward and optimise your popgen initiative
  • A new age of collaboration across biobanks: what is possible now
  • Live Q&A - Ask away!
