Two exciting post-doctoral projects are available via the ESPOD and EBPOD schemes between the European Bioinformatics Institute and respectively the Sanger Institute and the NIHR Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre (BRC). Post-doctoral fellows appointed via these schemes work on projects under the joint supervision of faculty members from EMBL-EBI and the Sanger or BRC as appropriate. Specifically:
(a) In collaboration with Mathew Garnet at the Sanger Institute, a project to exploit the potential of combining large-scale drug sensitivity screening platforms with the chemogenomics resources and expertise at the EBI.
A full description of the project can be found here: http://www.ebi.ac.uk/sites/ebi.ac.uk/files/groups/research_office/ESPOD2017/05%20Leach-Garnett.pdf.

(b) In collaboration with Vasilis Kosmoliaptsis in the Department of Surgery at Addenbrooke’s hospital, to capitalize on our greater understanding of the molecular basis of the immunological response and the ever-growing volumes of genetic and clinical outcomes data to develop new and improved methods for organ transplantation.
