Welcome to the Wales Gene Park

Harnessing Genetics to advance Research, Healthcare, Education and Innovation.

Our mission is to promote and facilitate medical genetic research and to educate and inform the public, health professionals, and young people alike about the issues and opportunities raised by genetics.

We bring together expertise and experience in genetics within Wales, provide state-of-the-art technologies to researchers in Wales and provide innovative initiatives to educate and engage health professionals and the public in Wales and beyond.

The Wales Gene Park is funded by Welsh Government through Health and Care Research Wales.
