These days, we can read genetic code faster and cheaper than ever before, leading to big strides in diagnosing disease, tracking deadly outbreaks and even analysing bacteria in space! It’s a fast-moving journey of discovery but what does it mean for our future? Should we be concerned about new technologies that can edit our genetic code?

In this lively, fast-paced ‘speed science’ social, researchers from the Wellcome Genome Campus will compete to enthrall and inspire you with their fascinating research stories and discuss your questions around DNA and genomes. Prizes and pride are at stake in this informal and friendly event!
