Genetics, genomics and molecular biology
Read the latest news and reports about our work related to understanding genes, proteins and other molecules that are critical to life. Our science funding in this area is led by our Genetics and Molecular Sciences team.
We support researchers across the world to explore fundamental questions about health and disease.
Emerging science and technologies, such as human genome editing and gene drive, could provide new solutions to health problems.
This page will talk about our work supporting research in genetics, genomics and molecular biology.
