The mission of the Centre for Genomic and Experimental Medicine is to use genetics and genomics to understand the mechanisms of disease and inform novel intervention strategies. The centre's researchers undertake detailed studies of populations, families and individuals to study a wide range of health related conditions, using state-of-the-art genetic, epigenetic, genomic, statistical, computational, biological and molecular approaches.
