Our research is focused on six key themes.
BioinformaticsWe are turning complex data into new knowledge to improve human health with specialised expertise, new data generation platforms and analysis tools.
CancerWe are investigating why cancer develops in the first place, as well as finding new ways to treat, diagnose and prevent it.
Healthy AgeingWe are finding ways to address the challenges associated with osteoporosis, neurodegenerative diseases, type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
ImmunologyWe are researching the immune cells and signalling pathways involved in inflammation and immune responses, with a major focus on type 1 diabetes.
