We provide an internationally competitive research environment that fosters mentorship and encourages interdisciplinary collaboration between academia and industry.

Our systems biology-based research informs the development of novel diagnostics, therapies and vaccines against some of the greatest public health threats of our time.

We have been working with colleagues in NHS Wales, Public Health Wales and Welsh Government and have played important roles in UK-wide initiatives in virus sequencing and understanding the role of the immune system during COVID-19.

We reach out to patients, healthcare professionals, schools, funders, policy makers and industry.
