Wellcome Genome would like the opportunity to share their work on Covid-19 with the local community and so would like to invite the residents of Hinxton, Ickleton and Great Chesterford to an online Zoom webinar.
The event will be held on Monday 22nd March from 6pm where Jeff Barrett, Director of the COVID-19 Genomics Initiative at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, will talk about the Covid-19 work being undertaken at the Campus. There will also be an opportunity for members of the public to ask Jeff questions.
A link to the seminar is here:

To facilitate their response to the pandemic, they will shortly be constructing a small temporary laboratory on the South of their site to accommodate the additional sequencing work. They state that they have designed and located this to minimise the impact to their neighbours, but will also share details of the new space in the presentation.
