The IGMM is currently harnessing the knowledge of our research community, expertise of our technical staff and our cutting-edge lab space and facilities in the fight against COVID-19.
In addition to supporting NHS Lothian with COVID-19 testing on site at the Western General Hospital Campus, work is ongoing across the Institute and its strategic partners in response to the virus itself and its impact on our health.
We combine the latest computational and experimental technologies to investigate how our genomes work to control the function of molecules, cells and tissues in people and populations. For more than half a century our research has been dedicated to understanding human genetic disease. Today we continue to apply our clinical and scientific expertise, harnessing the power of complex data, to improve health, and the lives of patients and their families.
