Human Genetics Administration

Human Genetics

The Human Genetics Administration comprises a five strong team that provides comprehensive support for the smooth running of the Human Genetics Programme. This includes both operational and strategic support. We work collaboratively across the institute with Administrators, HR, Finance and Scientific Administration to facilitate the cutting edge research carried out at the Wellcome Sanger Institute.

The activities of the team include anything from organising international travel itineraries, servicing multi-million pound collaboratorive grants and facilitating Faculty management meetings to organising hospitality and fielding day-to-day enquiries relating to specific projects, including sequencing.
