Wellcome Genome Campus Advanced Courses and Scientific Conferences is the only UK-based programme providing open postgraduate courses and conferences focused on biomedicine. Part of Connecting Science, we fund, develop and deliver training and conferences that span basic research, cutting-edge biomedicine and the application of genomics in healthcare.

Events are held in dedicated facilities at the Wellcome Genome Campus in Hinxton, a short distance from the historic city of Cambridge and home to the world-famous Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute.

Working with internationally-renowned scientists and healthcare professionals, we run events at the Genome Campus and in Latin America, Africa and Asia that aim to educate, inspire and transform careers.


CONFERENCES

Conferences foster discussion and debate at the cutting-edge of biomedical research, aiming to bridge the gap between basic and translational science. 


COURSES

Our courses are aimed primarily at biomedical research scientists, clinicians and healthcare professionals, and provide practical and interactive training in the latest biomedical laboratory techniques and data-analysis tools. All courses are subsidised and additional bursaries are available for many events.


OVERSEAS COURSES

We run several courses outside of the UK each year, aimed at building capacity in biomedical research and clinical communities in Latin America, Africa and Asia. Our overseas courses are free to attend and travel bursaries are available.


ONLINE COURSES NEW

In partnership with international and social learning experts FutureLearn, we are delighted to announce the first of our new online courses, which are available free to learners anywhere in the world.


RETREATS

A series of fully-funded, invitation-only meetings that promote high-level scientific discussion in an informal but intensive way. Retreats focus on forward-looking and emerging areas of scientific and technical interest, including associated policy issues.
