For this early phase of our work to establish a global genomics nursing alliance to accelerate integration of genomics into everyday professional practice, we have funding and support from three key organisations.

The Wellcome Genome Campus Advanced Courses and Scientific Conferences, Health Education England Genomics Education Programme, and the National Human Genome Research Institute are our three key funders.

Wellcome Genome Campus Advanced Courses and Scientific Conferences is the only UK-based programme providing open postgraduate courses and conferences focused on biomedicine. They fund, develop and deliver training and conferences that span basic research, cutting-edge biomedicine, and the application of genomics in healthcare.

Hosting around 50 events each year attracting up to 3,500 scientists and clinicians to the dedicated facilities at the Wellcome Genome Campus in Hinxton, a short distance from the historic city of Cambridge. We are delighted that WGC ACSC has agreed to host the Global Genomics Nursing Alliance Retreat in January 2017.

The WGC ACSC team works in partnership with outstanding scientists and clinicians to deliver cutting-edge events of the highest quality to benefit scientists and clinical staff world-wide. The events are a partnership between the expertise of the ACSC team in scientific event management and development and the expertise of the scientists and clinicians in developing the event programme and teaching or chairing.

Wellcome Genome Campus Advanced Courses and Scientific Conferences is part of Connecting Science which aims to inspire new thinking, spark conversation and support learning by drawing on the ground-breaking research taking place on the Wellcome Genome Campus.
