In this week’s episode, GOLD speaks to Patrick Short, CEO, Sano Genetics, about the challenges and opportunities facing genetic medicine today.

He discusses his personal connection to genetic disease, the reasons behind participation hesitancy and the therapy areas in which he believes genomic testing and medicine could be most impactful.

And in news you might have missed, the team explores some stories that emerged from the recent World Health Summit, including new funding for polio and antibiotic resistance research.
