Wales Gene Park Annual Report 2016- 2017

annual report 2The Wales Gene Park Annual Report 2016- 2017 is now available here

The report shows how Wales Gene Park has evolved and adapted to make the very most in Wales of the opportunities presented by genomics. A major part of what the Wales Gene Park does is to make genomic technologies available to biomedical researchers in Wales. This year we have undertaken work on thirty five genomic projects and trebled our output of DNA sequencing for researchers. We have supported external research grants bringing over £3M to Wales. But our work goes far beyond this. We create a seamless interface with the NHS, accelerating the appropriate development of new services in genomic medicine for patients. We involve patients and the public in the planning and execution of research and in service and policy development through an extensive programme of engagement. We promote understanding of the opportunities and challenges raised by genomics among health professionals, schools and colleges and the public through a wide portfolio of education activities. We are receptive to ideas, questions and comments. To get in touch please email:
