We expect our Campus community to grow significantly over the next 15 years. Find out more about the planning and the development work happening right now to make this a reality.Learn more
Our understanding of the human genome is opening up unexplored areas of diseases research in cancer, infectious diseases such as malaria and TB, and common inherited diseases that affect us all such as diabetes and arthritis. These new avenues of research will inform and drive the treatments of tomorrow, changing the way we are all diagnosed and treated in the future.
Professor Sir Mike Stratton Director, Wellcome Sanger Institute Chief Executive, Wellcome Genome Campus
Our community is diverse and excellent; we have been at the forefront of genomics-based research and development since the early 1990s. Together, the Wellcome Sanger Institute and EMBL-EBI have pioneered an approach to open-access data sharing that is the foundation of future, accelerated scientific discovery.Learn more
The Wellcome connection
The Campus is part of Wellcome, a global charitable foundation that exists to improve health for everyone by helping great ideas to thrive.
