The current COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in researchers travelling less and attending fewer scientific meetings. However, Sanger scientists remain eager to communicate their science and there is an appetite from the scientific community to hear Sanger’s latest research developments. The virtual seminar series will reach an even more diverse audience, including researchers from countries where travel to scientific meetings can be more difficult.


The Wellcome Sanger Institute is one of the premier centres of genomic discovery and understanding in the world. It leads ambitious collaborations across the globe to provide the foundations for further research and transformative healthcare innovations.
