Scientific partnerships

We are partners with several organisations and centres within the University of Liverpool and externally.

At the University of Liverpool

We are currently an integral part of the Liverpool Head and Neck Centre, the Liverpool Blood Cancer Centre and the MRC Centre for Drug Safety Science (CDSS), which sit in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences.

Within the CDSS we are leading the Systems Medicine component of a wide range of projects, including TransBioline. TransBioline is a large Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) project aiming at identifying circulating micro-RNAs that are a diagnostic of drug induced toxicity.

Genomics England

We are leading the computational biology aspects of the Head and Neck Genomic England Clinical Interpretation Partnership (Ge-CIP). And collaborating closely with the Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (CLL) Ge-CIP too, in order to exploit the full potential of the Genomics England 100,000 genomes project.

Defence Science and Technology Laboratory

We work in close collaboration with the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL), with whom we hold several projects tackling themes from antimicrobial resistance to biomarker discovery to enhance therapeutics in the field.

Our staff and services

As part of all these partnerships we hold dedicated members of staff that work closely with wet-scientists and clinicians. These partnerships deliver high quality science, training and software solutions, supporting all aspects of broader computational biology including omics analytics and experimental design.

Together we support a number of grant applications and wider scientific proposals with the aim to widen the capacity to exploit in-house data and applications.

We are currently evaluating other collaborative partnerships. If you are interested in working with us, do not hesitate to contact us.
