Platform sciences and technologies
New technologies play a central role in cutting-edge biomedical research.
This domain will provide a strategy for integration and development of central technologies that are important for both discovery and clinical sciences.
The domain’s activities will involve dissemination and training in novel technologies, as well as building and supporting teams to take on new cross-disciplinary challenges.
The domain will integrate central quantitative theory work covering systems medicine, modelling, inference and informatics. It will also coordinate the development of novel experimental approaches, equipment and facilities for discovery and clinical sciences. This will provide a route for the development of interdisciplinary quantitative new technologies that can have a major impact at any stage in the process – from discovery biology through to clinical translation.
The director for the platform sciences and technologies domain is Mike White.
