Personalised Health research

Personalised health

Our world leading personalised health research paves the way for uniquely treating individuals based on their genetics and other health data.

Our vision is a world where every patient receives the right drugs at optimal doses, maximising tolerability, and pre-empting and managing adverse drug reactions. This personalised approach maximises the efficacy of treatment while improving patient quality of life.

World leading research at the University of Liverpool has significant implications across the whole spectrum of pharmaceutical production and delivery. Most importantly it benefits the wellbeing of patients and society as a whole.
