At the LMS we use modern biological approaches and patient-derived information to gain an understanding of the molecular and physiological basis of health and disease. LMS research programmes are focused in two sections: Epigenetics and Genes and Metabolism. Strengths in these areas provide unique opportunities for scientific discovery and healthcare benefit. Our research has been widely recognised through national and international awards. Strategic partnerships with Imperial College London, the AHSC and with industry facilitate the translation of our research.
