GOSomics is a BRC funded platform set up to provide supervision advice and expertise with translational research in the area of proteomics, metabolomics and lipidomics and is based in the ICH Biological Mass Spectrometry Centre. The expertise of GOSomics and the BMSC includes screening and identification of novel clinical biomarkers from primary tissue and translation of markers to clinical tests.

GOSomics was set up in September 2012. Since that time we have participated in over 40 projects in collaboration with UCL based researchers as well as other national and international institutes and industry partners. 

GOSomics can perform small scale omics experiments for proof of principle purposes to contribute to translational research focused grant applications but we do not perform large scale biomarker discovery experiments or develop targeted proteomics assays. These types of experiments are performed and funded by joint grant funding with a member of the BMSC only.

If you have a project you would like to be considered for GOSomics please download and fill out the project application form. Once you have submitted your completed form a member of the GOSomics team will contact you for a preliminary meeting to discuss the potential of the project. 

Providing that the project fits the BRC criteria the project will be discussed at the monthly GOSomics committee meeting, with selection based upon scientific potential. Selected projects will be taken further, including obtaining pilot data and development of next-step analysis.

Please contact either Dr Wendy Heywood or Dr Jeremy Pryce to discus your project proposal further or to submit a completed form.

GOSomics committee members:

  • Prof. Neil Sebire
  • Dr Kevin Mills
  • Prof. Simon Heales
  • Dr Wendy Heywood

BRC Project Criteria

The focus of the project must be on experimental and translational biomedical research. Samples must be from humans.


GOSomics is a research non-profit initiative with limited funding for supporting selected projects. GOSomics will provide costing and strategy details for grant applications of projects submitted to its committee.

GOSomics is a new facility, funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) through Great Ormond Street Hospital Biomedical Research Centre (GOSH BRC). We are part of the 2012 BRC Diagnostics and Imaging theme lead by Professor Neil Sebire and are based within the ICH Biological Mass Spectrometry Centre run by Dr Kevin Mills.
