Festival News: Wellcome Genome Campus set to launch new BioData Innovation Centre
July 2016 sees the launch of new Wellcome Genome Campus innovation centre for genomics and biodata businesses.
Already home to some of the world’s leading genomic and informatics research, the Wellcome Genome Campus has a pretty exciting development lined up for this year. In July 2016 the Campus will open the doors on its brand new BioData Innovation Centre, an outstanding new home for innovative genomics and biodata companies.
“Supporting the delivery of our Campus vision, our new Biodata Innovation Centre will enable complementary innovative genomic and biodata companies to join the Campus in delivering life-changing science with the reach, scale and imagination to solve some of humanities greatest challenges,” explains the Chief Operating Officer, Martin Dougherty, in conversation with FLG.
Currently the Campus is home to the Wellome Trust Sanger Institute, a world leader in genomic research, and the phenomenal computing clout of the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI). Through co-location with these Institutes, partners in the BioData Innovation Centre will have enviable access to both science and infrastructure.
This development comes as part of a 25 year vision to cement the Campus as the European hub for both leading-edge science and the very best genomics and biodata businesses. “Through the vision we wish to build a community of aligned interests, from relevant disciplines, forming a critical mass of expertise and experience that drives forward new developments and conceives new opportunities in genomics and biodata,” says Martin Dougherty.
As a sponsor of Festival of Genomics Boston, the Campus is looking to meet with the companies that will go on to power the new BioData Innovation Centre and deliver the next generation of precision medicine solutions. Make sure to get involved and book your spot at Festival of Genomics Boston, to join the most inclusive genomics event.
