Training the next generation

The Centre acta as a portal for access of early and advanced training in the processes for and implementation of experimental and precision medicine to the next generation of clinicians, clinician scientists and bio-medical researchers.

We address the ‘skills’ gap in clinical experimental medicine, large data analysis and industry partnership working.

  • Industry Lecture Series

Organised by the Centre, these Lectures will bring expertise from Industry and will be an opportunity to network with the speakers. Please check out our news and event page for the next dates.

  • Genomics Education Program 

The Genomics Education Programme (GEP) is the NHS’s method of ensuring its staff have the knowledge, skills and experience to ensure that the health service remains a world leader in genomic and precision medicine – particularly for NHS England Genomic Medicine Centres (GMCs) and the contribution to the 100,000 Genomes Project. All resources can be found here.

  • Genomic Resources for schools

Centre of the Cell is a science education centre based at Queen Mary, University of London. It is the first science education centre in the world to be located within working biomedical research laboratories. We have partnered with them to create amazing shows and games about genes and genetics research suitable for schools.
