We are a highly collaborative group. While every member of the group has at least one project that they are leading on, there is a strong spirit of collaboration. This allows us to take maximum advantage of the diverse skillsets within the team, which includes geneticists, computer scientists, immunologists, molecular biologists and clinicians. We also collaborate closely with other groups at the Sanger (e.g. the Campbell, Gaffney and Trynka teams).
