Next Sanger Seminar: 21 April - Professor Nicole Soranzo
Human disease: nature, nurture or both?
Professor Nicole Soranzo is a group leader at the Sanger Institute, seeking to unravel the spectrum of human genetic variation associated with cardiometabolic diseases, and its interaction with non-genetic and environmental cues.

COVID-19 research at the Sanger Institute
We are committed to tracking, understanding and combatting COVID-19. Our staff sequence thousands of virus genomes and use the data to trace transmission, inform public health measures and monitor for new variants of the virus. We also work to understand how the virus interacts with our cells, and to develop new diagnostics
