Genetics Matters, one of the FMS flagship public engagement events, is back after a 2 year break due to the pandemic. A combination of lay lectures and hands on research tables, the event caters for 100 members of general public and is held as part of the International Rare Disease Day. Genetics Matters is always very well received and is now in its 7th edition. The event will run 1-5pm on Sunday the 26th February at the Great Hall of the Discovery Museum, and refreshments will be provided. 

We have an exciting program this year, showcasing genetic research in Newcastle, and covering topics such as rare diseases, rare cancers, male infertility, tissue engineering, drug repurposing, human development, ethical issues in genetic research, and patient and public involvement in research, amongst others. There will be hands-on experiments, microscopes, real laboratory specimens, short films, enthusiastic scientists and some rather lovely cake.

Our event this year is at the Great Hall of the Discovery Museum. The hall is located at the top floor of the museum and signage will point you in the right direction on the day.

The registration desk will open at 12:30 and the event will start at 1pm.
This event us suitable for ages 12+.
