The Living Laboratory for Precision Medicine at the University of Glasgow brings together a collaboration of partners to address the biggest challenge currently facing precision medicine: the adoption of healthcare innovations into clinical practice for the benefit of patients. Join some of the leading scientists responsible for the Living Laboratory in learning about how the development of precision medicine innovations and their adoption into healthcare will deliver savings for the NHS, improve health outcomes and drive economic development in Govan, Glasgow, across Scotland, and beyond.

The STAR - Studded Path to Precision Medicine Research

Alan Kennedy (Specialist Biomedical Scientist, NHS GG&C Bio-Repository)
Dr. Elaine Gourlay (Associate Scientific Affairs Manager, BioClavis)
Explore a sample journey from the patient to the STAR database. The Living Laboratory STAR team share how they will work to unlock genetic profiles from tissue samples, allowing for a better understanding of disease and improving diagnosis and treatment strategies. The Scottish Transcriptome Archive Resource (STAR) project, partnering BioClavis, the NHS and Precision Medicine Scotland – Innovation Centre, is generating transcriptomic profiles of over 30,000 patient samples from the  NHSGGC Biorepository  and the Pathology Diagnostic Archive.

7T MRI: New Frontiers of Medical Imaging

Dr Sarah Allwood-Spiers (NHS Clinical Scientist)
7 tesla (7T) MRI is an extremely powerful scanning technology that has the capability to produce highly detailed images of the body’s internal organs and tissues, allowing researchers and clinicians to study the human body in greater resolution than ever before. In this talk Dr Sarah Allwood-Spiers will explain the science behind Scotland’s only clinical 7T MRI scanner, located on the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital campus, and discuss how she and colleagues in the University of Glasgow-led Living Laboratory are bringing this next-generation medical imaging technology into the clinic.

One treatment doesn’t fit all! Transforming precision medicine research here in Glasgow

Dr Ed Hutchinson (Living Laboratory Head of Project Delivery)
Dr Louise Bennett (Living Laboratory Senior Project Manager)
The human body is a complex system which holds many secrets for expanding capabilities in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Research into precision medicine is still new and exciting, and ultimately aims to make treatments more effective and safer for YOU. We are bringing together the University of Glasgow, the NHS and industry to create a world leading precision medicine campus at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Govan. And, working together, we will find new answers and drive forward precision medicine for the benefit of patients!
