Living Systems Institute (LSI)

The Living Systems Institute (LSI) pioneers novel approaches to understanding living systems and the diseases that afflict them. This will inform prediction, diagnosis and treatment strategies for some of the most severe diseases facing humanity, spanning a broad spectrum, from chronic neurodegenerative diseases to the animal and plant diseases that threaten food security. The LSI will build on significant established research strengths in human, animal and plant diseases, and incorporate innovative diagnostic imaging technologies and powerful mathematical modelling capabilities.
