Medical Research Council Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine
One of the largest centres worldwide for human genetics and human medicine, the Medical Research Council Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine at the University of Edinburgh has over 500 research and support scientists.
By pooling the resources and complementary skills of partner centres and units, the IGMM brings together distinct expertise that maximises scientific discovery and translation of science.
The IGMM broadly focuses on genes and populations and normal and diseased cells to study development and disease mechanisms. The partner centres and units are grouped strategically to exploit common strengths in genetic and genomic analysis, and protein, cell and tissue regulation in disease, with emerging emphasis on innovative basic and translational science, from molecules to man and populations to process.
