Our Research

Research within the Genomics theme focuses on identifying and characterising the genetic and environmental aetiological components of common diseases by using a wide range of molecular and genetic experimental approaches.

Research areas

Our approach is to investigate diseases at both a population and family level, particularly where longitudinal clinical data has been collected. Consequently, we collaborate extensively with other research groups within The University of Manchester and other national and international groups.

The main research areas are:


Members of Genomics publish extensively in a wide range of both specialist
