Our passion for discovery drives our quest to uncover the basis of genetic and infectious disease. Our research is built upon our Faculty of approximately 40 research leaders. Each develops his or her own hypothesis-driven research, seeking answers to important biomedical questions, and leads a team of postdoctoral fellows, PhD students and support staff. We look to our Faculty to provide the vision to establish and lead internationally influential science, while giving them access to unparalleled facilities to support the delivery of projects and the generation of data and biological resources on a vast scale.
The Institute's researchers engage in projects that seek to further understanding of gene function in health and disease. They aim to generate data and resources of lasting value to biomedical research that can be translated into diagnostics, treatments or therapies that reduce global health burdens.
Our research portfolio is broadly divided into seven main areas of investigation: Human genetics; mouse and zebrafish genetics; cellular genetics; cancer genomics, pathogen genetics; malaria; and computational genomics. Working within these areas, our Faculty of world-leading scientists can explore and develop their own unique hypotheses.
