The McCarthy Group.

The diabetes research group led by Prof Mark McCarthy is based at both the Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism (OCDEM: www.ocdem.ox.ac.uk) and the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics (WTCHG). These two buildings are about 400m apart on adjacent University sites in the Headington area of Oxford.

(the WTCHG is in the University of Oxford Old Road Campus area towards the top of the map).

The research of the group is based around the following strands:

Susceptibility gene identification in type 2 diabetes and related conditions.

Translating gene identification into biological insights and clinical advances.

Genomic epidemiology.

Statistical genetics and bioinformatics.

We are active members of several major consortia including the UK Type 2 diabetes genetics consortium, BAIR, MolPAGE, the WTCCC, IGWANA, INTERACT, the International 1q consortium, EURODIA and ENDGAME.
