Genomics for Dermatology

Date: 28-30 November 2022

Location: Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, UK

Organiser: Wellcome Connecting Science


This discussion-based course is designed to provide an introduction to human genetics and the genomic approaches used currently to understand disease mechanisms for those working in dermatology and skin biology.

The course will provide an understanding of contemporary genomics as applied to skin genetics in health and disease. This year’s programme will highlight genomic technologies, including gene editing and single-cell transcriptomic analysis, as well as focusing on the cellular and molecular mechanisms of skin diseases. In addition, participants will gain knowledge of therapeutic strategies in monogenic skin diseases and epigenetics. There will also be an emphasis on methods and approaches required to analyse large genetic data sets.

This course is aimed at clinical and academic dermatologists and skin biology researchers, including those in training such as PhD or MD students. Applications from clinical lecturers, specialist trainees and consultants are welcome.

Application deadline: 6 September 2022

A limited number of bursaries are also available to attend this course.
