Cross-Disciplinary Fellowships (XDF)
Cross Disciplinary Fellowships

Are you a post-doctoral level physicist, chemist, mathematician, statistician, engineer, computer scientist, or similar, seeking training to become a leader in Quantitative Biomedicine?

XDF data

The XDF Programme partners the School of Informatics with the MRC Institute of Genetics & Molecular Medicine to train genuinely cross-disciplinary researchers.

XDF biomedicine

Biomedical data have already attained  a scale, diversity and potential that are unprecedented.

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.
