The Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing at Kingston University is running a series of FREE lectures on high profile topics, delivered by key professionals and academics in their field.
Each event will also provide opportunities to network, exchange ideas and to engage with the local community.
Professor Kay Davies will discuss Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) - a rare genetic condition with devastating progressive muscle wasting for which there is no cure.
DMD affects approximately 1 in every 3,500 boys. Before the advent of DNA technology, carrier detection for DMD was unreliable and prenatal diagnosis was not possible. Now, using DNA markers, diagnostic tests are now routine in diagnostic laboratories around the world.
