The Leena Peltonen School of Human Genomics

Summary
This Wellcome Trust Summer School provides an opportunity for students to learn and be inspired by those that have shaped human genomics in the past decade, and for current scientific leaders to interact with future stars in the field. Now in its fifth year, this popular course was re-named ‘The Leena Peltonen School of Human Genomics’ in 2011, as a tribute to Leena Peltonen

The schedule of this 4-day course is highly interactive with integrated presentations by the tutors and PhD students, discussions about current topics in human genetics, and one-to-one mentoring meetings between tutors and students. We expect that all tutors will stay for the duration of the meeting.
