We are thrilled that The Wellcome Genome Campus is launching the Sunflower today.

The Wellcome Genome Campus strives to be a place of inclusivity and acceptance, and to support that objective, they have joined the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower. The Sunflower is available to everyone on campus that wishes to let those around them know they have a non-visible disability. They can be obtained by emailing equality@sanger.ac.uk and then picked up from the Health and Safety office. And visitors can request them from the Conference Centre reception.   

Wellcome Genome Campus have trained all their staff ahead of the launch to recognise the Sunflower and to support wearers with kindness, patience and understanding.

Genome and biodata research is undertaken at The Wellcome Genome Campus. The Campus provides bioinformatics resources for the global scientific community and delivers vital training in genomics and biodata to scientists and clinicians. It is home to two leading institutes, the Wellcome Sanger Institute and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory’s European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), as well as innovative genomics and biodata companies, scientific facilities, and a state of the art conference centre.

The Wellcome Genome Campus is part of Wellcome, a global charitable foundation that exists to improve health for everyone by helping great ideas to thrive. Wellcome is a politically and financially independent organisation, supporting scientists and researchers, taking on big problems, fuelling imaginations, and sparking debate.
