While the developments around COVID-19 continue to evolve, the Wellcome Genome Campus is closed for all but essential functions and facilities. The return to campus roadmap is currently underway with some staff starting to migrate back to the Campus from mid-May 2021. People remain at the centre of everything that we do, and the majority of our staff are now working remotely to ensure continuity of operations, making use of remote communication and collaboration tools.
