I have several peer-reviewed publications in paediatrics and clinical genetics. In 2006, I established and developed a new biomedical journal (‘Genomic Medicine’-Springer) that led to setting up the official journal of the Human Genome Organization (‘The HUGO Journal’). I serve on the editorial board of the HUGO Journal as Co-Editor. I also serve as a member of the HUGO Publications committee. I am an Author/ Editor of many books and journals on genetics and genomics; lead organiser for several national and international conferences, courses and seminars; professional leader and international links with a number of genetics/genomics professional and specialist organisations; Founder and Medical Director of The Genomic Medicine Foundation UK (genomicmedicine.org).
