The Genomic Revolution... and You!

Presented by: Dr Steven Scott

Ferguson Lecture Theatre, Bishop's Stortford College.  CM23 2PJ


Discover how genomics is revolutionising our world. Rapid reading of the genetic code is enabling big advances in diagnosing disease and tracking deadly outbreaks. We're even analysing the DNA of bacteria in space – but what does it mean for our future?





Steve is from the Public Engagement team at the Wellcome Genome Campus just south of Cambridge near Hinxton, which is home to the Sanger Institute and EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute. The campus was involved in the Human Genome Project and is home to leading scientists in the fields of genomics and biodata. Steve’s work aims to encourage discussion about genetics research through visits, events, exhibitions, websites, and collaborations with artists, writers and filmmakers. Steve has a PhD in molecular biology and has worked in engagement with biomedical research with the Cambridge Science Festival, Medical Research Council and Wellcome Genome Campus.
