About the Event

The National Genomic Research Library (NGRL) is a comprehensive database that enables approved researchers to access de-identified genomic data, health data and samples. It is a partnership between NHS England and Genomics England. The resource, linked to the Genomic Medicine Service, aims to provide access to research opportunities to improve diagnoses and our understanding of health and disease, as well as accelerate the development of new biomarkers, diagnostics and therapeutic agents. Dr Moutsianas will speak about the data available in the NRGL environment and how things are moving forward from the 100,000 Genomes Project through the Genomic Medicine Service and other initiatives.

Meet the Speaker

Loukas Moutsianas is the Head of Bioinformatics Research Services at Genomics England. He is a computational geneticist with a background in complex trait genetics of immune-mediated disease. His doctoral research at the University of Oxford and his post-doctoral work at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics in Oxford and the Wellcome Sanger Institute, focused on large-scale genomic analysis of autoimmune diseases. He moved to Genomics England in September 2018, in a joint appointment with the William Harvey Research Institute, moving to a full position at Genomics England from September 2021.
