In their work, GEE researchers can rely on the services of a number of in-house facilities, both within GEE and within UCL. These comprise state-of the art omics analyses centres and high-performance computing, as well as a field station.
GEE is home to and member of a number of intra- and inter-institutional research institutes and centres. These organisations regroup researchers with shared interests in ageing, human genetics, mathematical modelling or ecology and evolution within GEE, UCL and the wider London academic landscape.
