Genetics Society at Queen Mary University of London

We are the Genetics Society at Queen Mary University of London; a group of keen students who are either studying genetics, or still are interested in this field!

Monthly events are held on campus to explore the basics of genetics, disorders, treatment and therapy, and learn about clinical trials, genetic counselling and screening. Active engagement outside campus (i.e. on social media with interactive quizzes) further demonstrates the enthusiasm in our society.
