Wellcome Genome Campus Advanced Courses and Scientific
Conferences is the only UK-based programme providing open postgraduate
courses and conferences focused on biomedicine. 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 low- and middle-income countries that aim to educate, inspire, and transform careers.
Conferences foster discussion and debate at
the cutting-edge of biomedical research, aiming to bridge the gap
between basic and translational science.
Our courses are aimed primarily at PhD students, postdocs
and clinicians, 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.
We run several courses outside of
the UK each year, catering for regional biomedical research and clinical communities in Latin
America, Africa and Asia. Our overseas courses are free to attend and
travel bursaries are available.
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.
