Meet the team

The Centre for Biomedical Modelling and Analysis is based in the £52million LSI Building and was established through a £1million grant from the Wellcome Trust which will fund the centre until 2018.

We are a rapidly growing centre for research with five Wellcome-funded Research Fellows, two Medical Research Council-funded Fellows and 5 PhD studentships which started in September 2016.

We aim to understand the fundamental physiological processes that facilitate health and the perturbations that can lead to disease. We seek to apply this knowledge in innovative ways to improve treatment and quality of life for people.

The centre's expertise spans several areas including:

  • Advanced mathematical and statistical modelling
  • High throughput –omics
  • Multi-modal imaging and image analysis
  • Systems biology and medicine
  • Involvement and engagement of the public in research

The centre provides opportunities for researchers within biomedical and clinical research to develop projects with strong quantitative elements.  We also provide training courses within the wider University, and opportunities to develop small research projects via our seedcorn funding.

We encourage informal enquiries about the work we do, and opportunities for new projects.
