Genomic and Experimental Medicine

The centre's mission is to use genetics and genomics to understand the mechanisms of disease and design novel intervention strategies. Students undertake detailed studies of populations, families and individuals to study a range of health related conditions. Study uses genetic, epigenetic, genomic, statistical, bioinformatic, biological and molecular approaches in model systems and clinical studies for systematic investigation of disease aetiology; with this knowledge, the aim is to improve disease prediction, prevention and prognosis; our translational agenda encompasses the development of new medicines and genetically-informed use of existing medicines in clinical trials.
