Precise diagnosis, more effective treatment and fewer side effects for the patients – that is the purpose of personalised medicine. The field aims to improve diagnosis and tailor treatment to the individual patient’s biological and clinical profile. All supported by the momentous development in genomic technologies and insights.
We work in a range of overlapping areas, including genomics, other ‘omics, pharmacology, medical bioinformatics, molecular biology, imaging, and gene therapy. In a translational framework - from lab bench to bedside and vice versa - we study huge data sets in clinical and population based cohorts as well as cell and animal models.
We are more than 23 groups and 70 staff members with diverse expertise in personalised medicine.
