Clinical Research Facility and Phenotyping Hub

The facility was set up with support from MRC and HEFCE Capital funds.

Specifically designed to identify and carry out cardio metabolic assessment of subjects who feature complete gene knock-outs (Population Genomics), the facility will act as a portal for UK bio-medicine to this recallable population-based bio- resource and enable directed triage of subjects to the UK network of centres, each with expertise and infrastructure for incisive gene centric experimental medicine studies.

Available techniques and services are:

retinal photo / iDXA / fibroscan+CAP / bioimpedance

height weight BP ECG abdo_circumference / clinical examination / blood tests
