Genetics and Genomic Medicine

The Genetics and Genomic Medicine Research & Teaching Department is a multi-disciplinary group of researchers with an international reputation for research into rare genetic disorders. Our aims are to deliver better diagnostics through identification of novel disease causing genes and accurate disease biomarkers for targeting of therapies. In order to support our powerful genomics and mass spectrometry technology platforms we create and integrate multi-omics data and its healthcare applications. We develop and run trials of novel therapies in rare disease patient cohorts.

It brings together professionals from multiple different sectors to tackle the most pertinent global problems. I am delighted to have been selected as an inaugural member. This means that I will be working with the first cohort to develop the overarching strategy and key priorities of the UK Young Academy. My personal sector is within Clinical Sciences and I plan to promote the importance of effective medical research and the need to reduce inequities in healthcare. I look forward to working with other members to develop innovative plans that create positive societal change."
