Leicester Precision Medicine Institute
Improving healthcare in an ethnically diverse population
The Institute represents an exciting, novel and new initiative between the University of Leicester and the University of Leicester Hospitals (UHL) NHS Trust.
The Leicester Precision Medicine Institute coalesces and aligns the research missions of the University and NHS. As a Centre of Excellence, it will develop, evaluate and implement prevention and treatment based on unique characteristics of individuals and subgroups of the population to provide more effective and safer healthcare and improved health to our diverse population.
Our key activities are underpinned by interdisciplinary discovery, evaluation and implementation science.
- Discovery: genomics, integrative -omics, disease mechanisms, biomarker development, drug discovery, companion diagnostics, developing predictive tools
- Evaluation: including clinical trials and stratified clinical trials
- Implementation: health services research and patient safety
Our research covers a broad spectrum of biomedical science with exceptional strength in our research areas:
