Bioinformatics at the NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre and the SLaM-IoPPN Centre for Translational Informatics: A quick Tour

October 14, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Dr. Stephen J Newhouse
Senior Bioinformatician
Social Genetic & Developmental Psychiatry
Kings College, London, UK


Our research is focused on translational bioinformatics and “Harnessing ‘big biomedical data’ for better
clinical care”.

We complement the strategic goals of the BRC/U by facilitating  the integration of clinical data from patient
records with large biological datasets. The biological data involved derives from disease-focused studies of
transcriptomics, genomics, epigenetics, proteomics and neuroimaging. This type of integrative approach will
better serve the need to identify biomarkers of diagnosis, prognosis, progression and treatment response for
neuropsychiatric disorders.

Our group brings together a range of experience in data analysis, bioinformatics, software development, systems
administration, mathematics and statistics. Our multi-disciplinary team is able to develop and implement
solutions for analysing and interpreting complex integrative datasets and for communicating findings to
clinicians and patients.

As well as our contributions to data management, analysis and integration, we also provide the BRC/U with the
computing infrastructure to handle their clinical and molecular diagnostic data. This includes two Linux
Clusters supporting a wide range of bioinformatics software and workflows.
