About the research seminars

The Genomics England Research Seminar series is a season of events held to demonstrate the best research from Genomics England and our partners. They started in October 2018, and are monthly, free-to-attend evenings of talks presented by GECIP members on the latest research being performed on the 100,000 Genomes Project data from our academic community (GECIP), commercial partners (Discovery Forum), COVID analysis and Genomics England research on other cohorts.

The seminars will be held on the last Tuesday of each month at 2-3:30pm. These will be online sessions open to everyone and free to attend, we hope to have representation from across the GECIP, Discovery Forum and 100,000 Genomes Project participants as well as anyone else who would be interested in joining. Sign up now to attend for free at: For updates on the seminars including announcements and speakers please follow the GECIP team Twitter.
