Wellcome Genome Campus Connecting Science

Connecting Science

Wellcome Genome Campus Connecting Science works closely with the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, as well as other organisations on the Wellcome Genome Campus, to enable everyone to explore genomic science and its impact on research, health and society.

Connecting Science’s mission is to inspire new thinking, spark conversation and support learning by drawing on the ground-breaking research taking place on Campus. It connects researchers, health professionals and the wider public, creating opportunities and spaces to explore genomic science and its impact on people.

The programme is led by Dr Julian Rayner, and includes the following teams:

Wellcome Genome Campus Advanced Courses and Scientific Conferences
