Welcome to the UCL Genetics Society’s Website

It’s great to have you with us, and we look forward to sharing experiences and opportunities with you this year!

Academic Events

External Speaker Events / Seminars: GenSoc aims to host a range of external speaker events, giving members the chance to hear from professionals in a range of professions including research, industry, and journalism. If you would like to hear from someone in particular, please reach out and we will do our best to contact them!

Weekly Journal Club meetings: In the Journal Club, a member of the society will volunteer to give a presentation relating to either a topic of their interest or a paper they found particularly inspiring (this could be you!). The presentation will be expected to last roughly 30-45 minutes, with an opportunity for attendees to ask questions afterwards.

Workshops: We want to learn about genetics, and we think you do too! We will be hosting workshops on topics voted on by our members, with a series of mini-presentations followed by a discussion or practical experience.


Social Events: Now that both in-person and online socials are possible, GenSoc will be hosting regular social events, which may include trips, picnics, quizzes, games, and many more. We can’t wait to see you there!

Blog and Newsletter

Monthly Newsletter: This is where you can find out all about what happened in the last month, as well as the timetable for the next.

Blog: GenSoc’s blog is a space where both members and committee alike can share written pieces in a professional published format. Any topic in the field of genetics is fair game – whatever your interest, we want to hear it!
