Quick links to various providers of different training courses that Gurdon Institute members can access
  • Training may be offered within the Institute, by the University or by other partners.
  • Look out for 'emails to everyone' notifying you of upcoming mandatory courses.
  • Use your appraisal meeting to consider with your line manager what training could be useful in your role.

(Note that some of the links below will only work for those on the Gurdon Institute or University of Cambridge networks)



A variety of resources from the Gurdon Institute, the University and local partners including the European Bioinformatics Institute, on our Bioinformatics Core webpages:  (Select ‘Tutorials and courses’ tab)


Health and Safety

Some of these are mandatory for specific roles such as those working with radioactivity or within the Human Tissue Act or with ladders at heights, etc.

Note that Fire Safety is mandatory for everyone and sessions are organised on site at intervals.


IT Skills

  • Extensive list provided by University Information Services


Personal and Professional Development

  • Including programmes targeted at academic or professional support staff, mentoring, apprenticeships.
  • You can join the email list for the termly flyer of upcoming events.


Public Engagement 

Offered by the University of Cambridge and others


Wellbeing, Equality and Diversity






Studying development to understand disease

The Gurdon Institute is funded by Wellcome and Cancer Research UK to study the biology of development, and how normal growth and maintenance go wrong in cancer and other diseases.
