Department of Medical & Molecular Genetics

Our mission is to embrace fundamental scientific discovery and its application to find new and improved ways to diagnose and treat genetic diseases.

Based in the Tower Wing of Guy’s hospital, our research uses the advances from the Human Genome project, new technologies in genomics and cell biology, and our expertise in statistics, genetic epidemiology and bioinformatics to explore human genetic variation and its relationship to human disease.

We house the Biomedical Research Centre’s state of the art Genomics Core Facility which is equipped with next-generation sequencers, robotics and array scanners for a variety of high throughput genomics applications.
