DMER: Data mining epidemiological relationships

About the DMER group

The “Data Mining Epidemiological Relationships” programme, led by Prof Tom Gaunt, is funded by the UK Medical Research Council as part of the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit at the University of Bristol. We investigate the mechanisms of disease through the integration of diverse biomedical and epidemiological data and the development of software tools for analysis of these data.

We love to hear from potential collaborators or from talented researchers who wish to pursue a career in bioinformatics, molecular epidemiology or data science. Get in touch!
