This Wellcome Trust Summer School provides an opportunity for PhD students to learn from and be inspired by those that have shaped our understanding of human genomics in the past decade. Now in its eighth year, this popular course was re-named ‘The Leena Peltonen School of Human Genomics’ in 2011, as a tribute to Leena Peltonen. The schedule of this 4-day course is highly interactive with integrated presentations by the tutors and PhD students, discussions about current topics in human genetics, and one-to-one mentoring of students by the tutors.
