At the Wellcome Genome Campus we undertake genome and biodata research. We provide bioinformatics resources for the global scientific community and we deliver vital training in genomics and biodata to scientists and clinicians. We are at the interface of research and industry, translating science into tangible societal benefits.
We are committed to delivering life-changing science that has the reach, scale and imagination to solve some of humanity’s greatest challenges; infectious diseases, antibiotic resistance, cancer, ageing, environmental change, and global food security.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.
