Oxford Viromics Symposium

Oxford Viromics Symposium

Posted 07/12/2018
Oxford Viromics is an initiative among Oxford researchers to promote accessibility of virus genomics data and methods for its analysis. The idea of the Symposium is to bring together people doing virus genomics in and in connection with Oxford. The aims are to examine how virus genome data can begin to address problems posed by viruses, and how we generate the data and analyse it. This is a free symposium taking place at the Oxford Martin School on Friday 11 January 2018.  Further details and to register, click here.

It is with great sadness that we learnt of the death of Sir David Weatherall this weekend. Sir David Weatherall, fondly called ‘Prof’ by those who knew him, was a general physician, a haematologist and clinician scientist whose research focused on the genetics of blood disorders affecting haemoglobin, such as thalassaemia and sickle cell disease.  As Nuffield Professor of Medicine, David inspired several generations of clinicians and scientists to investigate the molecular basis of human diseases and apply this knowledge to improve human health.
