Queen Mary has significant strengths in genomic medicine and electronic health through the William Harvey Research Institute (Caulfield, Trembath, Deloukas, Munroe, Tinker, Barnes and Ye), Blizard Institute (van Heel, Kelsall) and Wolfson Institute (Cuzick and Sasieni). We are one of the partners in the Farr Institute of Health Informatics Research, London.
As part of our National Institute for Health Research Biomedical Research Unit we have initiated generic consent for all cardiovascular patients at the new Barts Hospital with an informatics system that can collate information about consenting patients creating a rich longitudinal dataset that integrates clinical, laboratory and imaging data with a biorepository.
We host Genomics England which is tasked with delivery of the UK 100,000 whole genome sequencing programme in rare disease, cancer and infection and transform the application of Genomic Medicine in the NHS. Here there would significant research opportunities to work alongside a team of 12 bioinformaticans to be involved in the largest genomic medicine programme worldwide.
There is a significant opportunity to engage in teaching and training initiatives such as the new Masters in Genomic Medicine. This post is eligible for our EU Marie Curie CoFund to enable relocation of overseas talent to Europe.
