Overall Winner and First Prize Junior Doctor Category - Sarah Wedderburn
Sarah said "I am currently an ST5 in Clinical Genetics based at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow. I have always wanted to work in clinical genetics but it was my time as a core medical trainee on the oncology unit which focused my interest towards cancer genetics. The role of the clinical geneticist evolves with the specialty. Questions such as that asked by the essay will become ever more frequent and answering them will be part of our role. This essay has made me consider many of the current and future challenges facing clinical genetics and genomics."
