Bloomsbury Centre for Genetic Epidemiology and Statistics and South of England Genetic Epidemiology Group

The Bloomsbury Centre for Genetic Epidemiology and Statistics is a collaborative venture between the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UCL and Birkbeck.  Its aim is to advance the understanding of the genetic mechanisms underlying health and disease through the development and application of computational tools and quantitative methods and models.  The Centre aims to co-ordinate and foster collaboration between genetics research groups within and between LSHTM and UCL, and to provide a focus to highlight research and teaching activities in this area.

The South of England Genetic Epidemiology Group is a forum for researchers in both academia and industry with an interest in genetic epidemiology. We run a low-volume mailing list and organise half day meetings at approximaterly six-monthly intervals.
