Writing the Worlds of Genetic Medicine – a collaboration with Rich Gorman and Bobbie Farsides for the Wellcome Trust funded Eppigen Project.

In 2021 I was invited by Prof Bobbie Farsides and Dr Rich Gorman of Brighton and Sussex Medical School to collaborate on a unique qualitative research project, facilitating creative writing with a group of families affected by rare genetic conditions. This research programme was part of the Wellcome Trust funded Eppigen project.
