Nature’s Building Blocks: Decoding Disease
Jun 23, 2021

What are the impacts of inherited diseases on the lives of patients and families? How can genetic diagnostics empower individuals? 

When Michelle’s rare retinal disease developed, she worried it might also affect her son. With rapid advances in technology, genetic testing can provide not only invaluable information for managing conditions, but also empower patients and their families with knowledge and possibilities for targeted treatment.

Together with the Foundation Fighting Blindness, we are proud to share Decoding disease, a film presented by ICBA as part of the Nature’s Building Blocks series that explores the transformative role biotechnology is playing in solving humankind’s most complex problems. This film was produced for us by BBC StoryWorks, the commercial content division of BBC Global News.
