The department supports investigator-led research through a series of well-founded laboratories. This research covers every aspect of biological science related to medicine: from the bench to the bedside, from blue sky to full clinical trials, from technology development to spin-out. It covers many fields and many clinical disciplines.
The department supports this research in an environment designed to foster the long-term career development of fellows and research staff.
All of the above is made possible through the generosity and long-term support of our sponsors and funders.
A new study led by Professor Julian Knight at the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics and colleagues from the ULTRA-DD Consortium shows how genetics and knowledge of networks can prioritise drug targets for immune-mediated diseases. The Priority Index pipeline developed by first-author Dr Hai Fang is published in Nature Genetics.
