Scientists from all over the world work together to tackle cancer, eczema, and aenemia.  Your genes play a vital role in your health.  Your genes are a code helping your body undertake all the tasks that go into building, running, maintaining and repairing a complex human body.  When genes are damaged or mis-written, then we suffer diseases such as cancer, eczema and aenemia.
