The 'Settlers' exhibition has opened at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. Based on WHG research, this interactive exhibition tells the story of Britain's ever changing population as revealed by genetics, archaeology and demography.
WHG researchers have identified a gene that in women is linked to the creation and location of new fat cells and in turn contributes to an increased risk of type 2 diabetes.
The Oxford Genomics Centre has been working with Oxford Sparks to produce a fantastic animation, and associated resources, that explains how our cutting-edge sequencing facilities work. You can see the animation, and read more about the science, at the link.
As part of an international collaboration, the DIL group will identify infants with a significant genetic risk for type 1 diabetes to begin recruiting for POInT, a randomized controlled phase IIb trial to determine if daily administration of high-dose oral insulin in early life can prevent T1D-associated autoimmunity.
Centre leader Prof Simon Leedham has been one of this year's recepients of Cancer Research UK's "Future Leaders" prizes. The CRUK prizes recognise the achievements of the rising stars in cancer research, and celebrate the researchers who have shown outstanding dedication to beating cancer.
Centre Director, Professor Peter Donnelly, features in the latest “Talking Machines” podcast. Peter talks in his capacity with the Royal Society’s Machine Learning Working Group about the work they are doing in relation to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
