This session is a tribute to Professor Richard Cotton and his enormous contribution to the field of human genetics. It marks the occasion of his untimely death in June 2015. Prof Cotton’s vision of a world where human genetic and genomic information is systematically and sustainably shared across the globe has stimulated the establishment of many projects and initiatives, particularly in the past ten years. These will be presented and discussed by a distinguished panel comprised of Raj Ramesar, Aida Falcon de Vargas, Zilfalil bin Alwi and Ingrid Winship.
