Welcome to the Centre for Genetic Origins of Health and Disease

The Centre for Genetic Origins of Health and Disease (GOHaD) is home to a multidisciplinary team of statistical and molecular geneticists, bioinformaticians, computer programmers and epidemiologists. We collaborate with other medical researchers nationally and internationally to investigate genetic, epigenetic and environmental contributions to risk of common disease. Our major goal is to translate this knowledge into new and improved diagnostic tools and risk models to better identify those individuals at greatest risk of disease; ultimately to inform better health care provision and health outcomes.
