To arrange training, please email us with

specification of the training you need and your preferences.

Training can be tailored to your needs.

Genetics findings


Knowledge on genomic findings relevant to your field, e.g.:


  • Genetics for medical professionals
  • Genetics for policy makers
  • Genetics for lawyers
  • Genetics for educationalists/teachers.

Genomics law


Knowledge of legal issues related to genomic findings, including how findings can be misused; legal regulation; requirements for companies; protection of individuals; essential steps essential to ensuring positive use of these findings for the benefit of all people, as well as to maintain public trust in science. Our training in this area includes:


  • Data uses, misuse, risks, law in place, effectiveness of the law
  • Genetic discrimination in access to health care
  • Genetics and population (or so-called ‘race’ – there being no biological basis for ‘race’) discrimination
  • DNA based group discrimination
  • Necessary legislative and policy updates

Genomics business

Genomics is a multi-billion and multi-sector industry with immense opportunities for business, and well-planned has greater chances of success.

Applications of Genetic findings in practice


Latest advancements can now be implemented in many areas, including health care and education, and it is important to use these advancements effectively for the benefit of people. Our training includes implementation of genetics in many areas including:


  • Implementation of genetic findings in health care
  • Implementation of genetic findings in education
  • Implementation of genetic findings in justice systems, including legal systems

Ethics of Genomic and other research


Ethics are important for protecting individuals and maintaining public trust on research. Ethics are also essential for a number of reasons. For example, law generally updates much slower than science progresses; law is inaccessible to non-expert lawyers including because there are around 23,000 regulation and another 12,000 EU regulations; knowledge and consideration of ethical implications increases chances of research being conducted ethically.

We offer training on ethical of a number of areas, including:


  • Ethics of applications of genetics in practice
  • Ethics of genetics research
  • Ethics of genetic regulation
  • Ethical of societal provisions rated to health, education and other genetic related matters.

Other training


Short training sessions are also available at our events, including in our on going Genes & Tonic programme. We are currently organising CPD training for school teachers. For more information about our training services please email us.
