Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine,

I am conducting a survey of UK higher educational institutions to find out which have had business dealings with the Chinese genomic sequencing company BGI Genomics.

I would like to ask whether your university has ever had any contracts or business relationships with BGI Genomics or its UK subsidiary MGI Tech UK. If there has been any work undertaken by BGI Genomics with your university, please can you provide a list of these contracts with dates from and to, and a short description of what the contract was for. I would like to clarify that I am requesting information on any contracts with BGI Genomics from 1 January 2015 to 1 May 2023.

Yours faithfully,

John Lubbock
