Translational Infection Biology

Data analysis, machine learning and bioinformatics

Data analysis, bioinformatics and supervised and unsupervised machine learning are cohesive, synergistic disciplines with the ability to make a huge impact on the treatment and prevention of disease.

Here at the Translational Infection Biology Research Group, we merge these different disciplines and skills to develop novel bioinformatics and data analysis solutions. Together, we’re advancing the understanding and diagnosis of infectious diseases, as well as identifying the molecular mechanisms underpinning vector function in disease transmission.

Our interdisciplinary research sees us collaborating with colleagues from right across our research group – and far beyond. As a diverse, highly experienced team, we’re developing innovative bioinformatics tools, methods and solutions. We’re expanding our knowledge of infectious disease biology and paving the way for groundbreaking disease control strategies.
