General Information

The London Genetics Network is a new network designed for researchers working in human genetics in London and the surrounding areas. Funded by the Genetics Society and founded by Professor Angelica Ronald (Birkbeck) and Dr Karoline Kuchenbaecker (UCL), the Network’s aims are:

  • to increase London-based collaboration between researchers interested in human genetics
  • to leverage London’s expertise by fostering knowledge exchange
  • to develop practical and online resources for training and development in statistical and computational genetics
  • to support early career researchers through a range of new opportunities and research prizes

We will host our first meeting on Friday 4th December 2020 from 09:30- 16:00.  It will feature scientific talks, an early career research poster competition and there will be three carer awards that offer financial support with childcare for the meeting.  There will also be a strategy meeting to provide a forum for discussing the network’s strategy and remit going forward.

Academics affiliated with research institutions currently working in human genetics are welcome to attend. 


More details about poster submission, applications for carer awards and our online platform to follow. 


We look forward to seeing you at the online meeting! 


Speakers include Frank Dudbridge, Kaitlin Samocha, Andrew McQuillin, Thalia Eley, Nathan Skene, Oliver Pain, Olga Giannakopoulou and Conrad Iyegbe.
