Projects

We lead and support a wide range of educational projects designed to help improve genetics education, and biomedicine in general.

Currently, our flagship project is the Nowgen Schools Genomics Programme; an ambitious 3-year programme of work that aims to narrow the gap between genomics research and classroom genetics.
