Profile Information

The Centre for Biomarker Research is at the forefront of health or medical-related research within the University and beyond. The centre brings together academics and researchers in areas of biomarker discovery, disease aetiology, disease diagnostics, drug development and the development of advanced model systems. Since its inception, the CeBioR has been instrumental in developing high quality research in a broad range of areas relating to the improvement of human lives through the understanding of biological processes relating to disease aetiology and identifying new ways to improve diagnosis and treatment.

Research in the Centre looks to identify molecules, whether thery are metabolites, genetic variants , proteins or RNA and evaluates their usage as indicators of disease state or processes and encompasses several disease/conditions e.g. neurological, neurodegeneration, psychiatric and cancer. 

Fingerprint The fingerprint is based on mining the text of the scientific documents related to the associated persons. Based on that an index of weighted terms is created, which defines the key subjects of research unit
