Welcome to the Wales Gene Park

Harnessing Genetics and Genomics to advance Research, Healthcare, Education and Innovation.

The Wales Gene Park is an infrastructure support group funded by Welsh Government through Health and Care Research Wales.

Our mission is to promote and facilitate Welsh medical genetic and genomic research and its application to improve health and wealth in Wales. Also, to engage the public and health professionals to improve understanding of the opportunities and challenges arising through genetics and genomics.

We bring together expertise and experience in genetics within Wales, provide state-of-the-art technologies to researchers in Wales and provide innovative initiatives to educate and engage health professionals and the public in Wales and beyond.
