General Information

The Festival of Genomics is now the largest genomics event in the UK, and the second largest in Europe. Over 10,000 people have now attended a Festival globally, and the feedback is getting stronger and stronger, with record positive feedback for the last London Festival.

The Festival is changing and improving year-on-year. We work hard to bring you the very best speakers and projects across the UK and beyond. But more than ever, this year’s agenda and other activities are designed to deliver incredible content – intelligence and information that you can take back to your organization and really help to move the dial for patients.
