Diagnostic Services, Cancer and Genomic Research
Our lab is based at the Institute of Cancer and Genomic Science at the University of Birmingham. We conduct cutting edge research in cancer genetics, focusing primarily on colorectal, oesophageal, lung cancers and sarcomas.
We also run the human next generation sequencing facility within the College of Medical and Dental Sciences within the University of Birmingham, and provide diagnostic services for the Sars-COV-2 novel coronavirus which causes COVID-19.
We are primarily funded by Cancer Research UK, the Wellcome Trust, the Medical Research Council and the UK National Institute of Health Research
