About Genome Futures

    Welcome to the Genome Futures I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here! event.

    As part of the Wellcome Trust’s 75th anniversary celebrations we are running a special event, Genome Futures, that has been developed by the Public engagement team at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here!

    The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute is a research centre that was a leader in the Human Genome Project. It is now focused on understanding the role of genetics in health and disease.

    The Sanger Institute is giving local students the opportunity to explore genome research and how it may affect them in the future. They will get to quiz a panel of Sanger Institute researchers in a live CHAT, and ASK anything about the researchers, the research at the Institute or how understanding the information held in the human genome may affect their future lives.

    The students and Sanger Institute scientists use this website to talk about genomic research, exchanging ideas and opinions on the impact genomics may have on science and society. They both break down barriers, have fun and learn.

    The is more information for the teachers and scientists taking part. You can read more about why this is named the Franklin Zone.
