A new interactive webinar series from the Wellcome Genome Campus launching: BIODATAlks

We are excited to announce the launch of our new webinar series called BIODATAlks, taking the format of 30-45 minute interactive conversations, and hosted by the BioData Innovation Centre team at the Wellcome Genome Campus.

The webinars feature a variety of genomics and biodata experts- from established companies to start-ups and academic spinouts. These online sessions are designed to introduce you to thought-leaders, founders, and experts who have created successful teams and enterprises in the biodata and genomics fields. With absolutely no pre-recorded content, speakers expect to have questions thrown at them, so please have one or two comments/questions up your sleeve to make sure you get the most out of these informal discussions.

Each webinar in the series will be prompted individually with an Eventbrite sign-up page and the sessions are open to a global audience. Webinars will also be recorded, so even if you can't attend, if you register, we can email you a link to access the recording afterwards.

What makes them great?

• 100% live sessions designed to be interactive.

• Experts will answer all your questions.

• You have direct access to innovators, entrepreneurs, and experts.

• Get an insight into the life of a genomics/biodata company.

• Meet new people, connect with peers, and learn from the comfort of your armchair/ sofa/deck chair.

Who should attend?
