The University’s biomedical research is consolidated in multidisciplinary research centres.
These centres are clustered within contemporary research institutes located next to hospitals to maximise knowledge-exchange and research translation into clinical practice. The centres have also strong links with researchers in other colleges and schools.
The XDF-Programme Fellows will be offered office space in both School of Informatics and the MRC Institute of Genetics & Molecular Medicine (including MRC Human Genetics Unit, Cancer Research UK Edinburgh Centre and Centre for Genomic & Experimental Medicine). They are expected to explore local research environment to enhance learning process, look for inspiration and initiate scientific discussions and interactions.
