A post-doctoral level Programme for physicists, chemists, mathematicians, statisticians, engineers, computer scientists and similar, seeking training to become leaders in Quantitative Biomedicine.
The XDF Programme partners the School of Informatics with the MRC Institute of Genetics & Molecular Medicine to train genuinely cross-disciplinary researchers.
Biomedical data have already attained a scale, diversity and potential that are unprecedented.
Analytically minded people with unique skill sets.
Tutorials, books, courses and other educational resources.
Scientific events, social meetups, projects, publications and more.
Led by a board of Directors who will provide Fellows with diverse perspectives.
Frequently asked questions and other useful information.
Interdisciplinarity and innovation lies at the heart of the University.
XDF Programme Video-Introduction
Cross-disciplinary Research Environment
Systems biology must be embedded in a cross-disciplinary environment with biologists, chemists, computer scientists, engineers, mathematicians, physicists, and physicians. Our fundamental mantra is that leading-edge systems biology should drive the development of relevant technologies, and these, in turn, should push the creation of the necessary computational tools for handling the relevant data (often big data). These approaches have transformed our understanding of biological complexity.
