The Galton Institute is a learned society concerned with the scientific study of all aspects of human heredity. These include molecular genetics, genetic medicine, genetic epidemiology, population genetics and population dynamics, demographics, human evolution, elements of psychology and the statistical analysis of inherited traits.



This year’s conference, Environmental Factors in Gene Regulation, was held on 16 November at the Royal Society. We will soon be putting a video of the Galton Lecture up on this site.
