Research interests

His primary current research interest is in biobanking. This is an emerging discipline within biological sciences that takes a rigorous approach to the handling of biological resources. With the completion of the Human Genome Project, very large, high quality, accessible, sustainable resources have become essential to biomedical research translating the human genome sequence into health benefits. This then has implications for sample handling methodologies, for bioinformatics, for operational management and their setting in an appropriate collaborative, governance, ethical and societal framework. Intergovernmental bodies have advised on the need to develop global and European biological resource networks. He is actively involved in this work as Associate Coordinator for the EC-funded European Biobanking and BioMolecular Resources Infrastructure (BBMRI) Preparatory Phase and as PI for a Core Activity of Public Population Project in Genomics (P3G) work on Quantity and Quality Control (Q2C). He is also PI for the UK DNA Banking Network which is funded by the MRC. Through these activities he has many hundreds of collaborators in the UK, elsewhere in the EU and internationally.
