Wellcome Trust

Project Manager, Special Projects

Dr Amy Sanders works for the Wellcome Trust, a charity funding innovative biomedical research and public engagement, in the UK and internationally.

Amy was responsible for the Trust’s activities marking Darwin Year in 2009 which included experiment kits for every UK school, an animated fly-through of the evolution of life on earth shown on BBC 1, an award winning online game about genetics, a series of stand-up poetry workshops, and several art exhibitions.

Amy is now managing seasons of activities for the public on themes that tie in with exhibitions at Wellcome Collection (for example on Identity and Dirt) and with other major events such as the 2012 Olympics.
