Wales Gene Park

About Wales Gene Park

As a Health and Care Research Wales funded Infrastructure Support Group, Wales Gene Park aims to support the implementation of the Welsh Government’s Genomics for Precision Medicine Strategy by:

  • Promoting and facilitating high quality genetic and genomic health research in Wales.
  • Ensuring seamless translation of advances in genetics and genomics to improve NHS services and for commercialisation.
  • Ensuring the informed involvement of patients, public and professionals in the development of genomic medicine in Wales.

Genetics is integral to many areas of modern medicine. Genetic knowledge & technologies, and their application, now underpin the understanding, diagnosis and increasingly the treatment of disease. Wales Gene Park is a key organisation supporting this area of work in Wales.
