from discovery to adoption
The Precision Medicine Centre of Excellence (PMC) is a new clinical laboratory based in the Health Sciences campus at Queen’s University Belfast.
The laboratory is housed in a 563m2 floorspace in the Health Sciences building, boasting state-of-the-art technology, which will fully integrate high-throughput genomics, artificial intelligence and big data analytics.
Employing nearly 30 data analysts and scientists, the Centre aims to build on the University's internationally recognised strengths in oncology research and explore the potential for precision medicine to create individually tailored and personalised diagnostics and treatments for patients, thereby improving patient outcomes.
This tour will give you an insight into the leading research that takes place there and the potential for advances in patient care that Precision Medicine affords.
