Decoding the Complexity of Diseases: Exploring Disease Biology
A detailed understanding of the molecular mechanisms behind human diseases is critical for developing therapeutics, diagnostics, improved treatment of patients and disease prevention. Tremendous advancements in various areas of biological sciences including high throughput genomics, multi-omics technologies, gene editing and the ability to perform real-time experiments, are driving an unprecedented level of understanding of the disease mechanism. The Centre for disease biology will focus on conducting cutting-edge basic research utilizing the most advanced methods and technologies to understand the molecular basis of diseases and drive new strategies for therapeutic development, diagnostics and disease prevention.
Focus areas include:
- Molecular basis of disease
- Inflammatory and infectious diseases
- Neurological diseases
- Biomarker and Drug discovery
