UCL Division of Medicine
Institute for Human Health and Performance
The UCL Institute for Human Health and Performance (IHHP) comprises a mix of clinician-academic and pure ‘basic scientists’.
Its mission is to explore human physiology and pathophysiology - using the studies of one to inform the other.
In general, genetic tools are used. In particular, the IHHP pioneered (with Prof. Steve Humphries’ group, Centre for Cardiovascular Genetics) the use of gene-environment interactions to explore human health and disease.
