Scientific Focus

Our research leverages big data in genetics and genomics for medically important human traits. We aim to translate insights from genomics into mechanisms of disease development and progression, shortening the path to translation and empowering precision medicine.

Our overarching aims are to

  • Characterise the genetic architecture of common complex diseases of high public health burden;
  • Generate insights into the biological mechanisms underpinning chronic disease development and progression;
  • Develop robust methods for integrating big data to address key biomedical challenges;
  • Catalyse pathways to translation for disease prognosis, management and treatment.
