Online event


Wed 24th Nov, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

For our final talk in the series we delve into the most recent chapter of the Hall’s fascinating story, beginning with the landmark mapping of the human genome 30 years ago that paved the way for the cutting-edge biomedical research on site today, including our contribution to UK’s crucial Covid-19 surveillance effort. We explore how DNA sequencing plays a vital role in understanding health and disease, hear from people at the forefront of these discoveries, and celebrate what can be achieved when we make space for science.

Our panel for the night: Writer and commentator Anjana Ahuja will be in conversation with Sir Jeremy Farrar (Director Wellcome Trust), Prof Sir Mike Stratton (Director Wellcome Sanger Institute), Dr Cordelia Langford and Dr Jeffrey Barrett (Wellcome Sanger Institute) and Siggi Nepp (Senior Interior Architect, Abell Nepp Architects)
